Yocco was charged with four counts of first-degree rape, two counts of third-degree assault, two counts of second-degree rape and first-degree statutory rape.
According to the probable cause statement, a 16-year-old girl said Yocco had sex with her without her consent on two separate occasions. She also said he held her down, slapped her and had a gun nearby.
A 14-year-old girl said he had sex with her when she was unconscious and said he punched her.
A 13-year-old and 15-year-old said he had sex with them when they were unconscious. And two other 15-year-old girls said Yocco had sex with them without their consent.
