NEWPORT, N.C. (WNCT) — A Carteret County man is facing charges of indecent liberties with a child after he was arrested on Tuesday.
James Daniel Kilough, 61, of Newport is also facing felony statutory sex offense with a child under age 15. He was taken into custody and given a $350,000 secured bond. His first court date was Wednesday.
Officials said they launched an investigation on Jan. 11 into a report of possible sexual abuse. Detectives said the investigation began after a child told a child forensic interviewer at Carteret Children’s Advocacy Center about the alleged incident.
