Natrona County Man Charged With Child Sexual Abuse
A Natrona County man has been charged with multiple child sex-related crimes, according to court documents.
Aaron Rushing appeared in Natrona County Circuit Court for his preliminary hearing on Thursday, but the hearing was reset to next week because he does not have a public defender yet.
Rushing is charged with six counts of first-degree sexual abuse of a minor, one count of second-degree sexual abuse of a minor, and one count of possession of child pornography.
If convicted on all counts, he faces between 150 and 330 years of imprisonment.
The case started on Feb. 14 when a school counselor told a Natrona County Sheriff's Deputy about the discovery of a USB storage device that had images of child pornography.
Authorities determined Rushing was the adult portrayed in the images with children.
