CINCINNATI (AP) — A prosecutor in southwest Ohio says a registered sex offender has been indicted on 24 charges including rape and kidnapping in three 1995 rape cases.

Hamilton County Prosecutor Joseph Deters says 45-year-old Stanley Lightner was indicted Monday on 13 counts of rape, four counts of felonious sexual penetration, five counts of kidnapping and two counts of felonious assault.

The Cincinnati man could face up to life in prison if convicted of all charges.

Deters says two 12-year-old girls and a 19-year-old woman were raped in the 1995 cases.

Lightner was registered as a sex offender after a previous conviction. Deters says Lightner was recently arrested for allegedly failing to register his address. He says Lightner's DNA matched DNA from the 1995 cases.

Court records don't show an attorney for Lightner.
