Kennard couple indicted for sexual assault of child

HOUSTON CO., November 14, 2013— A Houston County Grand Jury has indicted a husband and wife for sexual assault of a child.

The man, Charles Bennett, has been charged with Sexual Assault of a Child, a 1st degree felony, and Improper Sexual Contact. The charges stem from his alleged sexual contact with his wife’s daughter – his step-daughter, beginning when she was 16 years-old, and continuing for a number of years.

Bennett’s wife, Sheila Bennett, faces the same charges, as she is reported to be a party to the offense. According to Houston County District Attorney Donna Kaspar, this means she encouraged or aided the offense in some way.

The Bennetts, both age 62, are currently awaiting arraignment.
