JAY A preliminary hearing for a former Jay High School custodian accused of repeatedly raping a teenage girl is set for next month.

Adam Wolf, 45, of Jay is charged in Delaware County District Court with four counts of second-degree rape, three counts of second-degree rape by instrumentation, three counts of forcible oral sodomy and three counts of sexual battery. He remains in jail on a $580,000 bail, court records show.

The preliminary hearing is set for Aug. 10, according to court records.

The teen, who has been diagnosed with emotional problems and has the maturity of a pre-teen, was 16-years-old when the assaults began.

Last school year Wolf befriended the teenager and gave her gifts of candy and pop, according to an arrest affidavit. He is accused of raping the student in his custodial office as well as other classrooms beginning in December, the affidavit states.

Wolf told authorities that the victim "just makes me weak" and that he was "unable to resist her," according to the affidavit.

She repeatedly "objected to each one of his sex acts," and at times Wolfe stopped because he felt guilty that the victim was crying out "that what he was doing to her was hurting her," the document says.
