Ashtabula County Grand Jury

JEFFERSON — EDITOR’S Note: The indictment of a person by a grand jury or otherwise is an accusation only and that person is presumed innocent until proven guilty. All information is taken from Ashtabula County Common Pleas Court records.

A 41-year-old Pierpont Township man, accused of raping a Conneaut woman early last month, has been indicted by an Ashtabula County Grand Jury on multiple charges.

David A. Goodiel Jr., of 5754 Scribner Road, was indicted on one count of rape, one count of gross sexual imposition and one count of abduction.

Goodiel allegedly took the victim’s keys while she was at his home for a cook-out and allegedly verbally and physically abused her, according to Ashtabula County Sheriff’s Department reports. Goodiel allegedly restrained the woman and violently performed sexual acts, according to reports.

The woman was reportedly able to make a brief phone call to alert a family member of the incident. The family member then reportedly called the Ashtabula County Sheriff’s Department to help locate the woman, according to reports.
