The Grand Jury charged Papalko with three counts of Rape, three counts of Kidnapping, four counts of Gross Sexual Imposition, one count of Complicity and one count of Disseminating Matter Harmful to Juveniles. Sexually violent predator and sexual motivation specifications are attached to several of the charges in the indictment.
The offenses occurred in September of this year. Since Papalko’s arrest, detectives have received reports of sexual assault going as far back as the 1990s. Detectives believe that there may be other victims who have not come forward.
Anyone with information about past crimes of a sexual nature committed by Papalko should contact the Rocky River Police Department at (440) 331-1234.
