A 63-year-old Gallipolis man is facing rape charges involving a nine-year-old girl.

Stephen Bush was arrested by state agents with the Attorney General’s Crimes Against Children Initiative.

The alleged crime is said to have happened between August and September of this year.

AG Mike DeWine says Bush “was a trusted friend of this young victim’s family.”

Agents questioned Bush for several hours yesterday before arresting him Thursday night.

The investigation is ongoing and additional charges are possible.
