Wine Faces More Charges

July 27, 2011

ST. MARYS — A St. Marys optometrist who already faces a rape charge was indicted on six more sex crimes, including two rape charges.

Douglas J. Wine, 52, 227 Candlewood Place, was arrested Wednesday after he was indicted on two counts each of rape, first-degree felonies, gross sexual imposition, third-degree felonies, and sexual battery, third-degree felonies. Wine was booked into the Auglaize County Jail Wednesday and was released on an own recognizance bond.

Wine previously pleaded innocent to one count of rape, a first-degree felony. He is accused of raping a 69-year-old Florida woman at his home on Oct. 10, 2009. Wine was ordered held on a $150,000 bond with a 10 percent cash provision, which he posted Feb. 8 — the day of his arrest.

Auglaize County Sheriff Al Solomon told The Evening Leader the new charges stemmed from a continuing investigation related to the initial complaint. However, he declined to reveal if the charges were linked to a new alleged victim. Solomon said Wine turned himself into the sheriff's office Wednesday.
