A Brown County grand jury indicted a man Friday who has been accused of sexual abuse of two children spanning more than a decade.
William Wallace Jr., age 42 of Gauche Rd, Fayetteville, was indicted Friday, March 25 in Brown County Common Pleas Court on two counts of first-degree felony rape, two counts of importuning and gross sexual imposition, both third-degree felonies, and one count of unlawful sexual conduct with a minor, also a third-degree felony.
According to the indictment, Wallace is accused of sexually abusing the first child since the age of four. That child is now 14.
The alleged sex abuse against the second child, who is now 13, is believed to have began at age eleven.
Wallace allegedly to some degree admitted the accusations to his spouse, according to court records.
Wallace was arrested Monday, March 28 and freed March 31 on $250,000 bond with a 10% option. A pre-trial hearing was set for April 7.
