Donald Scott Taylor, of the 100 block of Leigh Street in Pikeville, is charged with four counts of first-degree sex offense with a child and four counts of indecent liberties with a child.

Deputies said they received a report from a victim who said she was molested from the age of 6 until she was 12 years old. She said the incidents took place in the suspect’s home.

Deputies said Taylor has been cooperative in the investigation. He was held on a $4.1 million secured bond.
