Today, Hamilton County Prosecutor Joseph T. Deters announced an indictment against Anthony Pecord (DOB 10/15/72) for 8 counts of Rape and 8 counts of Sexual Battery.  If convicted on all charges, he faces the possibility of 88 years in prison.

Pecord is currently being held on bond in the Hamilton County Justice Center.

Pecord is charged with raping the victim while the victim was unconscious, and unable to consent due to intoxication.

Hamilton County Prosecutor Joseph T. Deters commented, “We take all cases of sexual assault seriously.  But when acts like this are committed by someone in a position of power and public trust, it is especially sickening.

Once this behavior was reported, the City of Loveland and the Loveland Police Department cooperated fully with the investigation.

We are concerned that more victims may be out there, and ask anyone who may have been victimized by Pecord to contact the Hamilton County Sheriff’s Detective Losekamp at 513-595-7484.”
