Charges have been filed in an alleged sex abuse case involving a 3 year old. 30 year old Gregory J. Marshall of rural Edwardsville is charged with four counts of predatory sexual abuse of a child. Authorities say the alleged abuse took place between August 1 and December 31 of last year at the home of the victim.
Alton and Edwardsville Police conducted the investigation after the mother of the victim contacted police in Alton. The child was interviewed at the Madison County Child Advocacy Center in Wood River, and Marshall was charged last week and taken into custody. Marshall is being held in the Madison County Jail on a $500,000 bond.
