UTAH A.G.’S OFFICE CHARGES WYOMING MAN FOR CHILD ABUSE IN 1980’S

The Utah Attorney General’s Office has filed felony charges against a Wyoming man for allegedly molesting a child nearly three decades ago.  Kelcey Webb, 62, was charged Monday with three first-degree felony counts of aggravated sexual abuse of a child that allegedly occurred in the 1980’s.
According to the probable cause statement, Kelcey Webb, 62, now lives in Cheyenne, Wyoming but the alleged victim recently reported to law enforcement that he had molested her and others in Clinton, Utah.  She learned about the other sexual abuse incidents at a gathering in 2011.
The alleged victim is now an adult and reported that Webb molested her hundreds of times from the time she was three or four years old until she moved away when she was ten.  Two others said Webb had sexually abused them when he was their babysitter.  Police officers in Holbrook Arizona were notified of a sexual abuse incident between Webb and a young relative that occurred in 1974 but no charges were ever filed.
Webb moved from Utah in 1985 and only returned to the state a few times. Children’s Justice Chief and Assistant Attorney General Craig Barlow was able to file charges because the statute of limitations does not run when a defendant is out of the state.
The Laramie County, Wyoming Sheriff’s Department arrested Webb and he is now in the Cheyenne jail waiting for an extradition hearing.  All defendants are presumed to be innocent unless found guilty in a court of law. A jail booking photo of Webb is available below.
