A Fayette County man was charged with sexual battery and two counts of unlawful sexual conduct with a minor.

Ronald W. Sturgell Sr. of Jeffersonville is accused of sexually assaulting two minors during the past six years.

According to Fayette County Sheriff Vernon Stanforth, Sturgell, 62, was investigated earlier in November when an 18-year-old woman came forward and said that Sturgell had sexually assaulted her over a six-year period. 

The unidentified woman told officials that she was sexually assaulted beginning when she was 14.

During the investigation, investigators discovered another person who was allegedly sexually assaulted by Sturgell. The second person said that she was 14 or 15 when Sturgell engaged in sexual conduct with her.

Sturgell was arrested on Nov. 7 and posted bond on Nov. 9.

Anyone with information is asked to contact the Fayette County Sheriff's Office at 740-335-6170.
