NEW CASTLE, Ind. (Nov. 10, 2015) - A New Castle man is charged with multiple counts of child molestation after he allegedly forced his girlfriend's 9-year-old daughter to perform sex acts on him.

Jeffrey Wilson is facing three counts of child molestation and one count of intimidation. The charges stem from a October 3 incident at the home of Wilson's girlfriend on South 26th Street in New Castle. The girl told investigators her mother was present while Wilson forced her to perform sex acts on him.

Court records state the girl witnessed her mother and Wilson "with a plate that contained crushed yellow powder." The girl then said she "heard them go to a different room and snort the powder."

Wilson told the girl he would "hurt her mother" if she didn't do what he told her to do.

Henry County Prosecutor Joe Bergacs said this case is one of the most disturbing he's seen.

“Any sex offense in and of itself, especially one involving children, and young children like in this case, is especially difficult case," Bergacs said.

Court records also show the girl said she wanted to leave the home because her mother and Wilson "acted like nothing happened."

Forensic interviews were conducted to determine if there was truth to the girl's allegations. Bergacs said the evidence in the case was enough to charge Wilson with the crimes. The prosecutor's office is still reviewing the case to determine if the mother will be charged.
