Cridersville Man Accused Of Child Rape

A Crid­er­sville man is accused of rap­ing a child in Bryan. 27 year old Justin Phipps appeared for a pre­lim­i­nary hear­ing Tues­day in Bryan Munic­i­pal Court, where it was found that there was prob­a­ble cause that Phipps com­mit­ted the crime. The case has now been bound over to the Williams County Com­mon Pleas Court. The Bryan Times reports that Phipps allegedly raped a child under the age of 13 on April 28 in Bryan, when he was in town vis­it­ing a friend. Phipps was arrested on a bench war­rant May 26. Yes­ter­day, Phipps was released on bond with a few con­di­tions. First of all, he has to reside at the Crid­er­sville res­i­dence, and he is not to leave his home except for court appear­ances or to meet with his attor­ney. He was also placed on GPS mon­i­tor­ing and is not to have any con­tact with children.
