In addition to impersonating an officer, Christopher Hendon, 26, is now facing 47 more charges, including kidnapping, abduction, assault, and endangering children.

The charges are all related to a a series of events that happened between March 29 and April 6 of this year. Hendon is said to have brought children into the Summit County Court several times within that timeframe while he posed as a resource officer as part of a "Scared Straight" program.
