Stephen B. Rader - Filthy Pervert Tells victims 'You're going to die" for telling........

A trial date was set Friday, Oct. 17, for a Middletown man arrested in August after police allegedly found child pornography in his apartment.

Stephen B. Rader, 29, of 209 Bavarian Drive, Apt. 4, is charged with three counts of rape and 22 counts of pandering sexually oriented material involving a minor. He is scheduled to stand trial Dec. 1 in Butler County Common Pleas Judge Andrew Nastoff's courtroom.

Shortly after Rader was arrested on Aug. 13, Middletown police officers described the child pornography seized from his residence as "some of the worst" they have ever seen.

Police seized DVDs, videotapes and a computer during a search of his Bavarian Drive apartment.

Rader also is facing a charge of intimidation for allegedly telling his accusers, "You are going to die," according to Middletown police. Detectives say Rader made threats before and after a grand jury convened to review the case.

He is housed in the Butler County Jail in lieu of $500,000 bond.
