West Virginian Man Hit with Over THREE HUNDRED Counts of Incest!
A Roane County, West Virginia man is in big trouble today after being charged with more than three hundred counts of incest!
According to a criminal complaint, Billie Gene Seabolt, 65, of Clendenin, was arrested Wednesday, April 28, 2021. A trooper responded to a call from Seabolt’s home saying another man had allegedly “made” the juvenile relative leave the home with him. The caller said they believed they had gone to a home in Kanawha County.
The trooper then went to the other man’s home and spoke with him, his wife and the juvenile, according to the complaint.
The criminal complaint states that the juvenile then allegedly told the trooper she had wanted to leave Seabolt’s home. The trooper said she briefly explained “things of sexual nature were taking place” at the home.
The criminal complaint states that during that interview, the juvenile reportedly claimed Seabolt had sexually assaulted her at least once a week from 2014 to 2017 and then again after 2018.
The trooper then went back to Seabolt’s home and arrested him. He is charged with one count of Sexual Abuse by a Custodian or Guardian, 1st Degree Sexual Assault and 312 counts of Incest – one count for each week during that time period.
Of course the reports do not disclose the relationship between Seabolt and the juvenile and that's for a good reason. In cases such as these the law prohibits the identification of victims of sexual assault and, disclosing the relationship could do just that. The victim was offered services through the Women’s and Children’s Advocacy Center where they will help moving forward.
Seabolt isn't getting ready to see the light of day anytime soon either, He's currently being held at the Central Regional Jail on a $1 million bond.
