A Hagerstown man has been charged with sexually assaulting a minor in an incident that allegedly occurred in Talbot County, Md., 15 years ago, according to Washington County District Court records.
William Wellington Long, 47, of 132 N. Locust St. is charged with 19 offenses, including two counts each of first- and second-degree rape and first-degree sex offense, as well as counts of second-, third- and fourth-degree sex offenses, second-degree assault, child abuse and indecent exposure, court records said.
The charges against Long were filed Monday. He was held without bond until a court hearing on Wednesday, in which District Judge Mark D. Thomas set his bail at $150,000.
Maryland State Police in Talbot County allege that Long raped a preteen girl in the spring of 1997, according to the application for statement of charges.
The alleged victim, now an adult, was recently interviewed separately by Maryland State Police and the Washington County Sheriff’s Office, the charging documents said.
