Catoosa couple charged in child sex abuse case
A Catoosa County man is facing charges after investigators say he sexually abused a child.
Steven Pyburn, 44, was arrested Friday and charged with two counts of aggravated child molestation, two counts of aggravated sodomy and incest.
According to an incident report, the Catoosa County Sheriff's Office was called to Pyburn's residence on reports of sexual abuse. The alleged victim's parent alerted authorities after the child told him she was abused by Pyburn over three years.
Authorities also arrested and charged Pyburn's wife, Sherry Pyburn, because they say she was aware of the abuse and did not report it. Sherry Pyburn has been charged with cruelty and being party to a crime.
