A 35-year-old Carroll man is accused of sexually abusing a child in town several times over the course of about three years, according to court records.
Timothy Shane McFarland was arrested Monday for felony sex abuse, a crime that is punishable by up to 25 years in prison if he is convicted.
“The victim was between the ages of 7 and 11 years old when the sex acts were committed,” a criminal complaint alleges.
The unspecified crimes happened between 2012 and 2015, court records show.
McFarland is held in the Carroll County jail in lieu of $25,000 bail.
