New Castle man indicted on child sex charges


A New Castle man could face life in prison on sex charges involving two young girls.

A criminal complaint from October alleges 67-year-old Marvin Geraci sexually molested two girls, ages 12 and 13, on multiple occasions over the past two years. Geraci reportedly engaged in the behavior on "vacations" to New Orleans and Daytona Beach, Florida.

The U.S. Attorney's office indicted Geraci on Tuesday on two counts of "transporting minors in interstate commerce with the intent to engage in sexual activity." If found guilty, Geraci faces life in prison. He could also face fines, supervised release and lifetime registration as a sexual predator.

The case was brought as part of the Project Safe Childhood, which aims to reduce the abuse of Indiana children through investigation and aggressive prosecution.
