A Harlan County preacher is facing charges of sexually abusing several children.
Edmond Gross, 56, of Wallins was indicted by a Harlan County grand jury Wednesday. He faces five counts of first-degree sexual abuse, one count of incest and one count of first-degree attempted rape.
According to the indictment each charge, except the incest charge, was with a juvenile under the age of 13. The incest charge was with a juvenile under the age of 18.
The charges date between 1976 and 1984. Gross would have been in his teens and early 20’s when the alleged crimes happened.
