Bodenweiser, 53, faces 39 charges of first-degree rape and 74 charges of unlawful sexual contact in the second degree. According to a press release from the Attorney General’s Office, Bodenweiser turned himself in to Delaware State Police at the Sussex County Courthouse, was arraigned in Superior Court and was committed to the Sussex Correctional Institution in default of $250,000 secured bail.
