MIAMI COUNTY — A local man was charged with gross sexual imposition this week after he was accused of sexually assaulting an underage victim in April in Casstown.
Cedric D. Britt, 39, who has previous addresses in Piqua and Casstown, was arraigned on third-degree felony gross sexual imposition in Miami County Municipal Court on Wednesday.
Britt was charged in connection with an incident on April 14 at a residence in Casstown. According to Miami County Municipal Court records, Britt forcefully molested a female victim under the age of 13.
Court records also stated that Britt grabbed and touched the victim “while holding her down” and the victim “screamed as long as she could” in order to get away.
Britt also knew the victim prior to the incident.
The incident was reported a couple days after it allegedly occurred after the victim spoke to a school counselor. The case was pending an investigation from the Miami County Sheriff’s Office. Britt was incarcerated on an unrelated charge after the incident.
A preliminary hearing for Britt is scheduled for May 21.
Britt is continuing to be held in the Miami County Jail on $50,000 bond.
