Senate candidate Eric Bodenweiser has been indicted on 113 felony counts.  He is charged by the Attorney General’s office with 39 counts of first degree unlawful sexual intercourse and 74 charges of 2nd degree unlawful sexual contact.

The State Police began their investigation several weeks ago after they were tipped that Bodenweiser sexually abused the boy starting when he was 10 and ending when he was 13 between October of 1987 and August of 1990.

Bodenweiser turned himself in to police at the County Courthouse and was arraigned and committed to SCI in default of $250,000 secured bail.  If he does post bail, Judge E. Scott Bradley has ordered that Bodenweiser be monitored by a GPS device and that he be subject to pre-trial supervision by Probation and Parole.
