A Limestone County grand jury has indicted a former Madison law enforcement officer on more than two dozen sex abuse charges.
William Watson faces 13 counts of sex abuse of a child under the age of 12 and 14 counts of sex abuse.
The child rapist was arrested in August 2012. He is accused of sexually abusing three girls between the ages of 12 and 16 over the course of several years. He was resigned from the Madison Law Enforcement Department shortly afterward.
Watson turned himself in and was booked into the Limestone County Jail Tuesday afternoon. Bond was set at $300,000.
