Couple Charged For Sexual Assault Of A Minor

A Big Sandy couple is arrested for aggravated sexual assault of a child. 24-year-old Don Wayne Dotson, Jr. and his 23-year-old wife, Jessica, remain in jail. We're told the alleged victim is under the age of 14, but is not the couple's child. Authorities are testing items, such as computers and video equipment, confiscated from the couple's home. They believe they could reveal more criminal activity. Big Sandy Police Chief Ronnie Norman says, "Contained in my affidavit for a search warrant we've alleged aggravated sexual assault of a child, promotion of child porn, possession of contraband consisting of child porn and obscenity."

Chief Norman also says there may be multiple victims involved and criminal activity may have happened in multiple jurisdictions. The investigation is on-going and more charges may be filed.
