APD: Man Arrested for Lewd Acts with a Child

Eugene Howard Wilmond Eugene Howard Wilmond

From news release:

58-year old Eugene Howard Wilmond was arrested today pending charges of lewd acts with a child under 16 years of age and possession of a firearm after felony conviction. Wilmond was taken into custody at the police station following an interview with Detective Billy Turner.

Detective Turner has been investigating allegations of inappropriate conduct between Wilmond and an 8-year old female which surfaced after one of Wilmond's family members disclosed their concerns to the police.

The investigation yielded information which we believed was enough to establish grounds for an arrest. Wilmond was transported and booked in to the Carter County Jail a short time ago.

I am told Wilmond's previous felony conviction was a sex offense out of San Diego, California from 1986.

I do not have any further details about the California case or the victim in this case. The district attorney will review the results of our investigation and determine what action is appropriate. These are very serious felony charges and persons convicted of such crimes face hefty prison time.
