Marietta Man Now Faces Rape Charge< < Back to
A Marietta man originally arrested on a charge of gross sexual imposition is now facing a charge of rape.
Washington County Sheriff Larry Mincks says Wilburn Bever, 47, was arrested in June for sexual acts committed on six and eight year old females in 2011.
Bever was freed after posting bond.
Mincks says the new information from additional victims and an analysis of Bever's computer led authorities to arrest him in Manatee County, Florida.
Detectives say Bever participated in other sexual acts with the eight year old during the same time frame.
Bever is being held in Florida pending extradition to Washington County.
