A suspended Marysville police officer is accused of molesting or propositioning 14 girls ages 12 to 17, including mentally ill, mentally retarded and injured children.

A judge has ordered Robert Pavlovich Jr. held in the Perry County prison in lieu of $500,000 bail on numerous charges, including involuntary deviate sexual intercourse and corruption of minors. It's not immediately known if he has an attorney.

Pavlovich has been suspended from the Marysville police force since March. District Judge Daniel McGuire has ordered him to surrender his badge and have no contact with the girls named in the indictment.
