CINCINNATI (FOX19) - Two men are in jail after authorities say they had sex with the same 14-year-old girl.
One of them reportedly paid her for it.
Doug Shurelds, 47, was arrested Friday. Jose Ruiz, 27, was taken in on Monday.
According to court documents, Shurelds is a convicted sex offender from Lima, Ohio. He is currently on probation for unlawful sexual conduct with a minor.
Ruiz is reportedly from the Louisville area.
Law enforcement sources say the men work for the same company and that they were working in the Montgomery area when they met up with the teenage girl for sex.
Authorities had reportedly been investigating the matter for over a month. The investigation arose, authorities say, after a Sycamore High School resource officer confiscated the teen’s phone because she was not allowed to have one. The phone was then turned over to detectives.
According to an incident report, investigators found explicit texts between Shurelds and the girl.
The report says Shurelds gave her three phones, that they talked several times per day and that they had sex multiple times.
The report specifies the teen and Shurelds met at a hotel in Sharonville, where they had sex.
Ruiz’s arrest report says he paid the girl for sex. It also claims he was planning to do it again.
Shureld’s case will go before a grand jury Feb. 18. He faces a second degree felony due to his previous conviction.
Ruiz will appear before a judge Tuesday morning.
