Indicted: Abilene Men Accused of Sexually Assaulting Children Under Age of 6

ABILENE, Texas (KTAB/KRBC) - Two Abilene men have been indicted for two separate child sex crimes involving children under the age of six.

A Taylor County Grand Jury indicted Gregory Charles Copher, 50, on two counts of Aggravated Sexual Assault of a Child and two counts of Indecency with a Child on Thursday in connection to an incident that was reported to authorities in April of 2016.

Court documents claim an investigation began after the child made an outcry to an adult, saying "I've got a secret. . . and I can't tell you."

The child then told the adult that Copher had sexually assaulted her multiple times, according to the documents, which say the child described the various types of sexual assault to detectives during a SANE exam.

Copher was taken into custody for this crime in September then released in October after posting a $50,000 bond.

Brady Wyatt, 29, is also accused of sexually assaulting a child under the age of six. He was indicted on an Aggravated Sexual Assault of a Child charge Thursday that was issued after the child came forward with allegations in November of 2016.

Wyatt was arrested in November is currently being held in the Taylor County Jail on a $50,000 bond.

There is no indication that Copher's and Wyatt's cases are related.
