CELINA, Ohio (WDTN) – A Mercer County man has been arrested for sexual conduct with a child.

The Mercer County Sheriff, Jeff Grey, said Monday 58-year-old Jerry L. Fisher was arrested for Unlawful Sexual Conduct with a minor.

The Sheriff says his office received information Saturday that Fisher had been having sex with someone under the age of 16 in the recent past.

An investigation revealed that on multiple occasions, Fisher had sex with the underage victim.

After consultation with the Mercer County Prosecutor’s Office Sunday, Fisher was arrested and incarcerated in the Mercer County Adult Detention Facility.

The Mercer County Sheriff says Fisher has a history as a sexually oriented offender and had been required to register his address with the Sheriff’s Office for 10 years.  That requirement expired in 2015.

His bond was set by Celina Municipal Court Judge James Scheer at $750,000.

The Mercer County Prosecutor’s Office is reviewing the case to determine if any additional charges should be filed. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
