Dr. Mark Shaffer Jr., of Aurora, is being held with a $100,000 bond following his arraignment in Portage County earlier this week. He was indicted Friday on two dozen related changes, including rape and gross sexual imposition. Aurora police said the investigation of Shaffer began when the U.S. Postal Inspection Service discovered child pornography being mailed to his home.
