A Washington C.H. man has been arraigned on 68 felony charges involving rape and nudity-oriented material with a minor.

Justin C. Hobbs, 20, appeared in the Fayette County Court of Common Pleas Monday for arraignment on 58 counts of illegal use of a minor in nudity-oriented material or performance. A Fayette County grand jury indicted Hobbs on an additional 58 counts after a search of Hobbs’s phone following a previous indictment for 10 felony counts in March.

In March a grand jury indicted Hobbs on charges for seven counts of rape and three counts of gross sexual imposition with a minor. A warrant was issued for Hobbs and he was arrested and booked in the Fayette County Jail March 21.

Hobbs posted bond and is out of jail on bail with a June 9 trial date that is expected to continue, according to Fayette County Prosecutor Jess Weade.
