Two East Tennessee men have been arrested in separate, unrelated cases of child sexual abuse after indictments by the Anderson County Grand Jury, authorities said Wednesday.
Gerald Wayne Condon, 44, of Maryville, and Roger Dale Lindsay, 50, of Clinton, were charged after two investigations by the Anderson County Sheriff’s Department Criminal Investigations Unit.
Condon was indicted on 25 counts of child sexual abuse offenses on one underage victim that occurred during the last four years, Sheriff Paul White said in a press release. Condon was arrested on Tuesday, March 10, and has been released after posting $100,000 bond.
Condon has been charged with five counts each of rape; statutory rape by an authority figure; sexual battery by an authority figure; sale, loan, or exhibition of material to minors; and incest, the sheriff said.
Lindsay was indicted on 18 counts of child sexual abuse offenses on two underage victims that occurred during the last six years, White said. Lindsay was arrested on Wednesday, March 11, and is currently in jail on $100,000 bond.
The sheriff said Lindsay has been charged with five counts of rape of a child, one count of statutory rape by an authority figure, and six counts each of incest and sexual battery by an authority figure.
Both of these cases were recently reported to the Anderson County Sheriff’s Department and were presented to the Anderson County Grand Jury after investigation, White said.
“Due to the age of the victims, the identity and relationship to the offenders and other information can not be released at this time,” the sheriff said.
