WEST PRICE HILL (FOX19) -

Bond was set at $1.2 million Friday for a 62-year-old West Harrison man accused of raping three small children.

Jeffrey Gossett is held at the Hamilton County jail on charges of rape and gross sexual imposition.

One victim was 5-years-old and the others were just 6 at the time of the alleged offenses in 2010, 2011 and 2012 at a residence in West Price Hill, court records show.

Gossett was arrested Thursday after Cincinnati police investigated and spoke with the victims and witnesses.

He has never been in trouble before, said his lawyer, Mike Allen.

"These are merely allegations at this point," Allen told FOX19 NOW. "My client has a spotless record and has been a good and productive citizen over the years. We are unaware of the specifics of these allegations at this point and look forward to our day in court."
