Harrodsburg man is indicted on sexual abuse charges

A Mercer County grand jury indicted a Harrodsburg man on sexual abuse charges Wednesday.

Rufus Owens Edwards Sr., 74, is charged with first-degree unlawful transaction with a minor, an illegal sex act with a victim under 16 and two counts of first-degree sexual abuse, according to a Kentucky State Police news release.

Police say there might be other victims who might have been sexually abused by Edwards since the early '90s, and possibly before.

Edwards was being held in the Boyle County jail on a $30,000 full cash bond.
