Accused Columbus Man Headed to Trial in June on Charges of Raping & Sexually Abusing Children

A man from Columbus who investigators say raped a young boy and girl in Ohio County, will face trial in June. Eric Christensen is accused of sexually abusing and assaulting a young girl and boy during separate incidents back in 2009. Christensen, according to court documents, raped a 10-year-old boy and forced the boy to perform sex acts on him. He also allegedly sexually abused an 11-year-old girl with a hair brush. Christensen, who now lives in Reynoldsburg, Ohio, is currently free on bond. If convicted though, that freedom will be a thing of the past, as he faces the possibility of years, if not decades, in prison.
