A North Platte man is facing charges after he allegedly sexually assaulted a juvenile female multiple times.

On Monday, January 6, North Platte Police responded to the report of a sexual assault in the 2300 block of East 6th Street.

Officers met with a female juvenile who reported that 40-year-old Wesley Sharp had sexually assaulted her with digital penetration multiple times.

Investigator John Deal said the juvenile reported that she had slept over at Sharp’s house on January 5th.  She claims that Sharp insisted that the juvenile sleep in his bed along with his wife.  During this time, the juvenile told officers that she awoke to find Sharp assaulting her.

Then, on January 6, Sharp reportedly gave the victim a ride home.  Deal said that during the ride home, Sharp pulled the vehicle over near Cody Park and sexually assaulted her again.

The victim claims the abuse has been taking place over a three year period.

On Thursday, January 9, police made contact with Sharp and arrested him on a charge of first degree sexual assault of a child.

Deal said the investigation is ongoing.

    Why would this child continue to be involved with this male. After the first time this happened to me, I never went near that male again, and he was a family friend.

      Clearly you’ve never been a victim. Predators are professional manipulators – sometimes using threats of violence, mental abuse and other sickening tactics. Educate yourself, you sound like an ahole.

        obviously Rita, you didn’t read my whole comment. I was 11 when i was molested. The guy lived in our house, and worked for my dad. It happened once, and I made sure I was never alone with him again. And I never told my parents what happened.

    you all talk like the way above chimo looks. Who cares who called the police, whoever it was, did the right thing! That girl is in need of some psychological help, same goes for the parents.
