REPUBLIC, Ohio — The mayor of Republic is facing multiple charges after he was accused of throwing a family member on a bed and punching her in the face several times.

According to court records, 49-year-old Jeffery L. Larick (R-Republic) was charged with domestic violence, a misdemeanor of the first degree; illegal restraint, a misdemeanor of the third degree; and disorderly conduct, a minor misdemeanor.

The incident allegedly occurred Sept. 28, 2019 when deputies from the Seneca County Sheriff’s Office were dispatched to the residence of Larick on Kilbourne St. in Republic on a report of a heated argument, according to a police report.

When deputies arrived, they learned that Larick had allegedly forced his way into one of the rooms in the house, threw his family member on a bed, and punched her in the face several times, according to a police report.

A breathalyzer test showed Larick was under the influence of alcohol at the time of the incident, with a blood-alcohol-content level of 0.129, according to a police report.

Larick has pleaded not guilty to the charges. After posting bond in September, Larick was allowed to return to his residence after the alleged victim had vacated.

The second pretrial in the case is set for today at 2:15 p.m., according to Tiffin-Fostoria Municipal Court records.
