A Durant man is charged with child sexual abuse, following an investigation by the Durant Police Department.
Glenn Edward Walsh, 35, Durant, was arrested and charged after police received information about a juvenile who had been sexually abused.
The juvenile was interviewed and according to an affidavit by Officer Shane Harkey, she disclosed that she had been fondled.
Lt. Chris Marcy questioned Walsh, who said he had “messed up and made a mistake,” the affidavit states.
He declined to provide additional information. During Walsh’s initial court appearance this week, his bond was set at $50,000.
