July 16, 2008

MARTINSBURG, W.Va. - A 20-year-old man is accused of sexually touching a 4-year-old girl in front of her 9-year-old brother late last month, according to Berkeley County Magistrate Court records released Monday.

Justin Wayne Ross of Martinsburg was arraigned Monday by Magistrate Sandra L. Miller on two felony counts of first-degree sexual abuse.

Miller set a $40,000 bond for Ross, who allegedly touched the girl inappropriately June 28 at her home in southern Berkeley County and at his home that same day.

The girl demonstrated how the defendant touched her, and she made a drawing that depicted a bed and figures that she said represented herself and the accused, and where the unwanted contact happened, according to a complaint by West Virginia State Police Trooper W.R. Garrett.
