Three felony sex charges have been filed against a Mansfield teen who police removed from the blood drive he was holding to obtain his Eagle Scout badge after a young boy claimed he had been sexually assaulted.

Brandon Traicoff, 18, who suffers from numerous physical and mental disabilities caused by a mother who drank and took drugs during pregnancy, was in Mansfield Municipal Court for arraignment Monday morning.

He's charged with first-degree felony rape which carries a maximum 11 year prison sentence and $20,000 fine, and third-degree felony counts of Gross Sexual Imposition and Unlawful Sexual Conduct With a Minor, each carrying up to three-year prison sentences and $10,000 fines.

Traicoff's bond is set at $50,000 cash. Should be post bond, he would be on electronic monitoring, and is to have no contact with the boy or his family, who do not live in this area.

 First Assistant Richland County Prosecutor Bambi Couch-Page filed the charges after evidence showed he performed oral sex on the boy.

Traicoff was previously charged with groping an elderly woman when he went to collect money for selling popcorn for his Boy Scout troop. And last week, he was accused of sneaking out of his grandparents' house, going into a neighboring elderly woman's garage, and attempting to sexually assault her.

Couch-Page says she cannot and will not allow Traicoff to remain free when he cannot control his sexual urges targeting children and elderly women, and electronic monitoring and his grandparents cannot keep him under control.

Traicoff's grandmother told the court Traicoff's extensive medical needs are not being met in the jail. Couch-Page says she is trying to find a secure medical facility for him.
