The girl that accused Smith of the assaults told police that the DJ “committed sexual offenses against her about 10 times” at a house in Lancaster, Pennsylvania, and that he raped her after she turned 18. Charges against Smith include “forcible rape, two counts of involuntary deviate sexual intercourse with a person under 16, aggravated indecent assault of a person under 16, sexual assault and 13 other offenses,” the report noted.

In a statement published after Smith’s arrest, WJTL asked listeners to “join us in praying for all those involved and that truth and justice will prevail.”

Smith’s bail was set for $250,000 after his arraignment, and is currently being held in county jail.
