GREENVILLE, Ohio (WDTN) – A man accused of raping a juvenile female is being held on a $150,000 bond Tuesday.

Hermelando Chacon, 29, faces a single charge of rape, a first-degree felony, after he is said to have forcefully engaged in sexual conduct with the young female victim this past Sunday within the city of Greenville, according to the Early Bird.

Chacon’s immigration status is unverified at this time, according to the Early Bird. The state requested a higher bond during the hearing due to the facts in the case and that it is currently unclear if the defendant is in the country legally.

Chacon is expected to appear in court at 1 p.m. Nov. 4, pending a formal indictment by the Darke County Grand Jury. He faces a maximum of 11 years in prison and a $20,000 fine if convicted of his charges. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
