Fostoria sex crime case heads to court

A Fostoria man is facing a gross sexual imposition charge in Seneca County Common Pleas Court after recently having his case bound over to the court.

According to court documents, Emilio R. Chavez, 63, faces the fourth-degree felony charge for allegedly pinning a woman against her kitchen counter and rubbing himself on her earlier this month.

He also allegedly pushed her on a couch where he groped her and attempted to kiss her.

According to Seneca County Sheriff’s Office reports, the incident had happened at a West SR 18 residence. A woman had reported a neighbor came to her door to borrow something when he came in and committed the alleged acts.
