Waynesboro man faces molestation, child-porn charges
WAYNESBORO - A Waynesboro man is behind bars amid allegations he molested a young girl and took illicit pictures of her, the Augusta County Sheriff's Office said. The suspect has already confessed to sexually abusing the girl, court records show.
A sheriff's office investigator said Child Protective Services notified authorities last week that a 12-year-old girl came forward with allegations that Frank Russo, 65, had been molesting her for several years. Investigator Michael Roane of the sheriff's office said the girl underwent a forensics interview, and he said Russo also was questioned. Roane said authorities believe the alleged abuse took place for "a number of years."
A search warrant filed in Augusta County Circuit Court shows that Russo voluntarily gave authorities a digital camera containing a memory card. Russo also reportedly confessed to sexually abusing the girl, and also admitted to taking photos of the child.
Russo is charged with aggravated sexual battery and producing child pornography. He is being held at Middle River Regional Jail.
