OTTAWA — A Cloverdale man waived his right to a speedy trial in connection with three counts of rape and two counts of gross sexual imposition.

A final pre-trial was held Wednesday in Putnam County Common Pleas Court for Larry J. Burkhart, 76. No trial date has been set in the case.

Details of what led to the charges haven’t been disclosed. The rape charges are all first-degree felonies, while the gross sexual imposition charges are both third-degree felonies.

Burkhart remains free on bond.
