A Medina man is now facing rape charges in the alleged sexual assault of a teenage girl.
Nicholas Franick has been indicted on multiple counts of rape and gross sexual imposition for allegedly molesting a now 14-year-old girl over a period of several years.
Three of the charges allege Franick assaulted the girl when she was under 13, which could result in a possible life sentence.
Medina and Wadsworth police began investigating after the girl told her mother about the alleged abuse, who later called police.
