FARMINGTON -- A Wyoming man, formerly of Clinton, has been charged by the Utah Attorney General's Office for molesting a child almost three decades ago.
Three counts of aggravated sexual abuse of a child, first-degree felonies, were filed against Kelcey Webb, 62, of Cheyenne, Wyo., in 2nd District Court on Monday.
He was booked in the Cheyenne jail waiting for an extradition hearing.
According to the probable cause statement, the victim recently reported to law enforcement that Webb had molested her and others in Clinton in the 1980s. She learned about the other sexual abuse incidents at a gathering in 2011.
The woman reported to police that Webb molested her multiple times from the time she was 3 or 4 years old until he moved away when she was 10. Two others said Webb had sexually abused them when he was their baby sitter.
Webb moved from Utah in 1985 and only returned to the state a few times. Children's Justice Chief and Assistant Attorney General Craig Barlow was able to file charges because the statute of limitations does not run out when a defendant leaves to reside in another state.
