A Shelbyville man has been charged with multiple counts of sexual-related offenses against two female children who are related to him.

Jessie Allen Stump, 60, of 110 Ada Ave. was indicted Wednesday on two counts each of first-degree rape and incest of two children, for which he was babysitting, KSP Det. Ben Wolcott said.

The offenses occurred in September 2003 and April 2012 in Shelby County.

Wolcott said Stump has a history of the same type of sexual offenses, dating back to 1987 in Jefferson County.

He said the children have been removed from Stump’s care and that more charges could be forthcoming.

Stump is lodged at the Shelby County Detention Center under a $50,000 cash bond.
