CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) - A Linwood man is behind bars after police say he raped a 12-year-old girl.

James Coffey, 69, is charged with one count of rape.

According to court documents, the offense took place in January of last year. It's unclear what took so long for Coffey to be charged.

During his arraignment on Wednesday, Coffey's attorney told the judge that he denies the charges.

"He is not a threat to the community," said Bruce Attenborough. "These are serious charges, but he maintains his innocence."

Coffey's bond was set at $250,000 and he was ordered to stay away from the victim.
