MARTINSBURG, W.Va. - A Berkeley County man was jailed Thursday on three felony counts of sexual abuse by a parent or guardian and a charge of failing to register as a convicted child abuser less than a month after being sentenced in another case involving a child, according to court records.
The man's name is not being released because of his relationship with the victim, a 4-year-old girl.
The defendant remained in jail Thursday night on a $160,000 cash-only bond set by Magistrate JoAnn Overington, according to court records.
A complaint filed with the court by West Virginia State Police Sgt. D.E. Boober states the alleged contact occurred April 20.
Little more than two weeks before, the defendant entered a no-contest plea to a misdemeanor count of battery to resolve a February indictment charging him with four felony counts of incest and four felony counts of first-degree sexual assault, according to circuit court records.
