Wetteland facing 3 counts of child sex assault
3:30 PM ET
DENTON, Texas — A Texas grand jury has indicted former All-Star and World Series MVP pitcher John Wetteland on three counts of continuous sexual assault of a child.
The indictments Thursday in Denton County, north of Dallas-Fort Worth, follow Wetteland’s January arrest. According to a consolidated complaint and probable cause affidavit from the January arrest, Wetteland is accused of having a child perform a sex act on him, beginning in 2004, when the child was 4, and that it happened twice more during a two-year period.
The 52-year-old Wetteland was released in January after posting a $25,000 bond. A phone number couldn’t be found for him Friday, and it’s unclear if he has an attorney.
He was also inducted into the Texas Rangers Hall of Fame.
