A 47-year-old man is scheduled to appear in Marietta Municipal Court Friday afternoon on a charge of gross sexual imposition.
Washington County Sheriff Larry Mincks says Major Crimes Task Force Agents arrested Wilburn Bever Thursday morning in connection with the sexual abuse of two young girls in the summer of 2011.
When questioned, Bever told officers he allowed the six-year-old and eight-year-old girls to touch him inappropriately at his home on Morris Loop Road.
Bever is being held without bond.
The Major Crimes Task Force includes the Marietta and Belpre police departments, the Bureau of Criminal Investigation and Identification, the Morgan and Washington counties prosecuting attorneys and sheriff's offices.
