May 21, 2013

A Columbus defense attorney has been indicted on sexual assault charges after a woman reported being fondled during a meeting at his office.

Javier Armengau is charged with sexual crimes against five women dating to 1998. Ohio Attorney General's Office spokesperson Jill Del Greco says two of the alleged victims were former clients of Armengau, two were mothers of former clients and one was a former employee.  Armengau was arrested last month after forcibly fondling a woman and exposing himself.
