Dayton, Ohio, man charged with sexually abusing child in Jessamine County

November 20, 2013 

A Dayton, Ohio, man has been charged in connection with the sexual abuse of a child in Jessamine County.

Moses Kuhbander, 28, was transported Wednesday from the Montgomery County jail in Dayton to the Jessamine County Detention Center in Nicholasville.

Kuhbander was charged with first-degree sexual abuse and being a persistent felony offender second-degree. He was earlier indicted by a Jessamine County grand jury, said Jessamine County Chief Deputy Sheriff Allen Peel. Kuhbander allegedly subjected a child less younger than 12 to sexual contact on July 20 in Jessamine County.

First-degree sexual abuse is a Class C felony punishable by five to 10 years in prison.

Kuhbander refused to waive extradition from Ohio, so a governor's warrant was issued to bring him back to Kentucky, Peel said.

Kuhbander remains in the Jessamine County jail in lieu of a $50,000 cash bond.
