Repeat offender faces charges here

Hearing set for abduction suspect

The Associated Press

A man who has been in and out of jails and state prison for 21 years faces prosecution on charges that he abducted, attacked and robbed two women in Hamilton and Clermont counties.

Randy J. Slider, 40, is jailed in lieu of $3 million bond in the Hamilton County Justice Center in Cincinnati. He waived arraignment this week and has an Oct. 28 hearing scheduled in Common Pleas Court to determine when a trial date can be scheduled on charges of rape, aggravated robbery and kidnapping.

Sheriff's authorities said Friday that after Hamilton County is through with Mr. Slider, neighboring Clermont County wants to prosecute him on charges of kidnapping, robbery, attempted rape and grand theft of a motor vehicle.

The state also wants Mr. Slider for a possible parole violation, Hamilton County sheriff's spokesman Steve Barnett said Friday.

Mr. Slider was arrested early this month in Monroe, about 25 miles north of Cincinnati, on charges that he had attacked and abducted two women, police said.

Mr. Slider was convicted in 1993 of felonious assault and gross sexual imposition in Washington County. A 24-year-old Marietta woman who gave him a ride home from a bar accused him of trying to rape her, police records showed, but she managed to escape.

Mr. Slider served eight years of his 11- to 20-year state prison term before he was paroled in April 2001.

Between 1981 and 1993, he repeatedly was jailed and was convicted of at least a dozen charges of drunken driving, records show.
