Two men charged with rape were among 22 people indicted on Tuesday by a Highland County Grand Jury.

Storm D. Faulconer, 20, Greenfield, and Benjamin McClellan, 19, Hillsboro, were each indicted on two counts of rape, a first-degree felony, for separate incidents in which they allegedly had sexual relations with juveniles.

According to a law enforcement affidavit, McClellan was charged after a juvenile informed the Hillsboro Police Department on Aug. 31 that McClellan had forced her to have sex with him on two separate occasions.

McClellan later admitted to having sexual relations with the juvenile, but denied forcing her to do so, according to the affidavit.

According to a law enforcement affidavit filed in Faulconer’s case, Faulconer was charged after a man and a woman informed police that they had been told Faulconer was involved in a sexual relationship with a juvenile in the home.
