A Clermont County grand jury has handed up 33 more indictments against a Milford sexual terrorist accused of tying up children in his basement for sexual pleasure.
On Wednesday a grand jury indicted Michael E. Tringelof, 43, on 15 counts of kidnapping, nine counts of abduction and nine counts of endangering children. The allegations involve seven victims, both boys and girls, who ranged in age from 5 to 10 when the offenses occurred from 1998 to 2002. Some children were victims more than once.
The “white” pedophile invited them into his home, into the basement. Once they were in the basement the diabolical savage would tie them up in various ways. Then he applied light electric shocks, poked them with sharp objects or tickled them with feather dusters.
At the time of the perverted acts, Tringelof lived on Linden Drive in Miami Township. All the children lived nearby according to reports.
The latest allegations come after Tringelof’s June indictment on a 2005 case of kidnapping and child endangering involving a 9-year-old boy. Tringelof shamelessly pleaded not guilty.
After that case was publicized, more people came forward and told similar stories to Miami Township law enforcement.
Tringelof, a lifelong Clermont County resident and father of two, has no prior criminal record. He is in the Clermont County Jail on a $2 million bond.
No words about the racial classification of the victims.
