Ex-MVP Wetteland indicted on 3 counts of child sex assault
DENTON, Texas (AP) — A Texas grand jury has indicted former All-Star and World Series MVP pitcher John Wetteland on three counts of continuous sexual assault of a child.
The indictments Thursday in Denton County, north of Dallas and Fort Worth, follow Wetteland’s January arrest . He’s accused of making a child repeatedly perform a sex act on him.
The 52-year-old Wetteland was released in January after posting a $25,000 bond. A phone number couldn’t be found for him Friday and it’s unclear if he has an attorney.
He was also inducted into the Texas Rangers‘ Hall of Fame.
