Attorney General Daniel Cameron announced Friday that a Trigg County Grand Jury indicted Gene Bush, 68, Cadiz, for child sexual abuse.

According to the release, Bush is charged with five counts of sexual abuse first degree, a Class C felony, and one count of indecent exposure first degree, a Class B misdemeanor.

An investigation conducted by Kentucky State Police found that from 2011 to 2016, Bush had inappropriate sexual contact with four separate minors, and on another occasion, exposed himself to one of the same minors.

“Our office will vigorously prosecute crimes that harm Kentucky’s children,” said the attorney general. “I am grateful to the Kentucky State Police for their investigative work and the work of our Office of Special Prosecutions to bring charges in this case.”

The Attorney General’s Office of Special Prosecutions presented the case to the grand jury. Assistant Attorney General Alexander Garcia will prosecute the case on behalf of the commonwealth.

A warrant has been issued for Bush’s arrest, and a full cash bond is set at $25,000.
