Walter A. Yearwood

The Wilson County Sheriff's Office detectives have arrested a Lebanon man for multiple counts of aggravated sexual charges against a minor.

Deputies arrested Walter Allen Yearwood, 49, of Lebanon, Friday, July 13, after a grand jury indicted him on eight counts of rape of a child and aggravated sexual battery of a minor.

Detectives said they began investigating in June this year after receiving information from within the community.

Yearwood is currently in custody and is being held on a $100,000 bond pending a court appearance August 8.

"This kind of crime is especially heart-wrenching," Sheriff Robert Bryan said.

"An innocent child should never have to suffer in silence. If you suspect any such activity is occurring regarding someone you know, please speak up."

Calls should be directed to the WCSO at 615-444-1412. Callers will remain anonymous.
