CLEVELAND: A Republican who unsuccessfully ran for Congress last year must face a judge in Cleveland on sex-related criminal charges.

Sixty-eight-year-old Thomas Ganley of Brecksville faces arraignment Tuesday on three counts of gross sexual imposition and one count each of kidnapping, abduction, soliciting and menacing by stalking.

He was indicted two weeks ago, charged with groping and soliciting sex from a 37-year-old woman who offered to volunteer for his campaign.

Ganley, who owns a car dealership, has become a familiar face in northeast Ohio where his TV ads have aired over the years. He has denied wrongdoing.

The allegations first emerged in a civil suit filed five weeks before the congressional election he lost to incumbent Democrat Betty Sutton.
