Disgusting, disgusting, disgusting.
Back in January, John Wetteland was arrested by police on a charge of child sex abuse and the details surrounding the crime were horrific.
The former 1996 World Series MVP and member of the Texas Rangers Hall of Fame allegedly abused a 4-year-old relative that first began back in 2004. Authorities believe the abuse continued at least two more times in the years following, according to Dallas Morning News.
“Wetteland, 52, is accused of continuous sexual abuse of a child under the age of 14, according to Denton County jail records. The Trophy Club resident posted $25,000 bond and was released from custody the same day as his arrest.
He had forced a young relative to perform a sex act on him, according to the arrest warrant affidavit, beginning in 2004 when the child was just four years old.
The abuse occurred at Wetteland’s home in Bartonville, the affidavit stated. It happened twice more over a two-year period, the victim said.”
Two months later and the former New York Yankees pitcher was indicted on charges of aggravated sexual assault of a child, via the New York Post.
Wetteland retired from baseball in 2000 and briefly served as the Washington Nationals’ pitching coach in 2006.
