Another meteor? Reports come in of bright flash across Ohio, Ind. night sky

Springfield men indicted on sex charges


One of three men indicted for allegedly having sex with a 15-year-old girl was arraigned in Clark County Common Pleas Court on Friday.

Dion Malcom, 24, pleaded not guilty to one count of unlawful sexual conduct with a minor. His two co-defendants weren’t in court. Darreus Silas, 24, of Springfield, had his court appearance continued until next Friday. Raymond S. Grundy, 24, remains at large and a warrant has been issued for his arrest, according to court records.

The three were directly indicted by a Clark County grand jury on Monday. According to Clark County Assistant Prosecutor Brian Driscoll, they are accused of taking a 15-year-old Montgomery County girl living in a foster home in Clark County, to the Cole Manor Apartments to have sex. The alleged incident occurred March 12.

Driscoll said the encounter reportedly wasn’t forced, but because of the victim’s age, the three men are facing charges and will be tried together.

Malcom is out of jail on his own recognizance.
