Woman accused of child molesting

COLUMBUS, Ohio – A Vinton County woman is in jail, facing a dozen charges that she molested a child under 13.

Cassandra Holsinger, 28, was indicted Thursday by a grand jury on three counts each of rape, sexual battery, gross sexual imposition, and kidnapping, Attorney General Mike DeWine, Vinton County Prosecutor Trecia Kimes-Brown and Sheriff Shawn Justice announced.
