JEFFERSON COUNTY, Ohio — Three people facing child sex abuse charges were arraigned in a Jefferson County courtroom on Wednesday.

It's two separate cases involving three people, and Jefferson County Prosecutor Jane Hanlin wants to make sure these crimes aren't committed again.

"It's actually one of the most disturbing statements I've ever read in my life. It's absolutely awful," Hanlin said of a case involving the alleged rape of a 7 year-old girl by 32-year-old Shawn Hoagland, and 33-year-old Brandy Depew.



Hoagland is facing one count of rape. Depew has one count of complicity to rape of that same child.




Hanlin asked for their bond to be raised to $500,000.

"The incentive to flee would be even greater now than it was," Hanlin said. "We know more today than we did at that early hearing."

Eric Morris was arraigned on two counts of rape of a 4-year-old girl.

"This has been happening to her since the time she could walk," Hanlin said. "This is this child's version of normal life. She doesn't know any different."

His bond was also set at half a million dollars.

"We want to make absolutely sure these individuals are available for trial, and that they don't flee the jurisdiction, because in that case, we would worry about the safety of other children," Hanlin said. "We don't take any cases more seriously than we take these."

All three individuals pled not guilty to their charges. They are being held on bond at the Jefferson County Jail until their trial dates - none of which have been determined.
