Hill facing additional charges

Martins Ferry resident Ryker Hill, 23, is facing additional charges stemming from a recent arrest on five counts of gross sexual imposition.

He’s now facing two rape charges in addition to the imposition charges.

Hill admitted his guilt while applying for a position with the Ohio State Highway Patrol.

Set to take a polygraph test at the academy in Columbus, Hill allegedly admitted to looking at child pornography as well as incidents with touching of three juvenile vicitms in the last few years.

This admittance came during a brief questioning prior to the start of the polygraph.

Hill was detained last week after OSHP officials alerted the Martins Ferry Police Department.

Hill was taken into custody and booked on $50,000 bond. He was later tranferred to an Athens facility to undergo a mental evaluation.
