Fostoria man’s bond set for sexual assault charges

A Fostoria man charged with sexual battery of a minor after allegedly sexually assaulting a teenager over the weekend appeared in court Tuesday where his bond was set at $200,000 cash or surety.

Jennings W. Matthews, 39, who was charged with the third-degree felony after a woman reported Saturday afternoon her 16-year-old daughter was being inappropriately touched, also was ordered Tuesday to have no contact with the victim, according to court documents.

He is scheduled to appear again in court Jan. 22 for a preliminary hearing.
