LIMA — A co-director of a Lima soup kitchen was indicted by a grand jury on four felony charges Thursday in Allen County Common Pleas Court.
Scott Catlett, 58, co-director of Our Daily Bread, was charged with two counts of rape and one count of kidnapping, all first-degree felonies, as well as assault, a second-degree felony. The charges stem from allegations made in June of a sex crime from a male victim. A preliminary hearing in June revealed that the victim was in jail at the time on a burglary charge.
During the hearing Thursday, bond was set at $100,000.
Catlett had been the co-director of the soup kitchen since April 2015 after then-director Stephen Jenkins was dismissed. He had previously been the site manager at the soup kitchen for six years.
A lifelong Allen County resident, Catlett is the son of former Lima Police Chief Frank Catlett, a connection that was made by his attorney during preliminary hearings as proof that he was not a flight risk.
No initial hearing date has yet been set.
