Bond has been set at $250,000 cash for a Radcliff man arrested last week for sexually assaulting a 6-year-old girl.
Steven Shackleford, 33, was charged with three felony sex offenses. According to an arrest citation, the abuse occurred four times over a nearly three-month period.
Shackleford is alleged to have sexually assaulted the daughter of a woman he knew four times between October 1, 2018, and January 11, 2019, according to an arrest citation.
Radcliff Police Chief Jeff Cross said police became aware of the alleged abuse after the child was taken to a doctor.
According to the citation, Shackleford “confessed” to the acts when he was arrested Friday.
He is charged with first-degree rape and first-degree sodomy, Class A felonies punishable by 20 to 50 years in prison, or life in prison, if convicted, and first-degree sexual abuse, a Class C felony punishable by five to 10 years in prison, if convicted.
Shackleford was arraigned on the charges Tuesday and pleaded not guilty. He is scheduled for a preliminary hearing at 9 a.m. February 1 in Hardin District Court.
Should Shackleford make bond, he is to have no contact with anyone under the age of 18 as part of his bond stipulations.
