UPDATE 2:05 p.m.  A Stewart man now faces charges of kidnapping in addition to charges of gross sexual imposition following an Athens County Grand Jury session today.    

Athens County prosecutor Keller Blackburn says the charges stem from allegations Gregory Gilkey sexually assaulted a 3-year-old girl and held her against her will.
 
Gilkey had been initially charged with two counts of gross sexual imposition after children services received a report that the girl had been sexually abused. The grand jury indicted him on two counts of gross sexual imposition and two counts of kidnapping.
 
Sheriff's deputies say Gilkey confessed to having contact with the girl twice in March. 
 
Gilkey is currently behind bars at the Southeastern Ohio Regional Jail.
