A Bee County Grand Jury indicted 44-year old Ezra Herschberger on four counts of continuous sexual abuse of a young child on Aug. 21.
Herschberger allegedly committed aggravated sexual assault with a child in four different instances that stretched over different time periods.
One count involved indecency with a child by contact from Sept. 5, 2007 to Aug. 30, 2008; another count involved aggravated sexual assault with a child from Feb. 4, 2008 through Jan. 30, 2010; one count from June 19, 2010 through May 30, 2012; and the last count involved indecency with a child from May 20, 2012 through June 6, 2014.
Herschberger was arrested in May of this year and his bond is set at $400,000. If convicted on all four counts, Herschberger could be sentenced anywhere from 25 years to life in prison.
