A Waddy man has been indicted for multiple counts of felony sex-related charges involving a child.

Trinity R. Satterley, 30, of 4151 Waddy Road was indicted in December on charges of first-degree sodomy, incest and first-degree sexual abuse.

He was arrested in October and has remained in the Shelby County Detention Center on $150,000 cash bond.

Kentucky State Police Detective Mitch Harris said a call from the public led police to Satterley, who he said committed those crimes from 2003 to 2007 with a female child between the ages of 3 and 7 years old. 

The sodomy and incest charges are both Class A felonies, which carry a penalty of 20 years or more. The sexual abuse charge is a Class C felony, punishable by 5 to 10 years in prison.

Harris said the offenses occurred mostly in Shelby County, but some happened in Franklin County as well, all involving the same child.

He added that the term “incest” is defined only as a close family member.

The circumstances surrounding the incidents are not described in Sattlerley’s criminal file.

Kelley Sheets of the Shelby County Commonwealth Attorney’s office said the case would be prosecuted by the Franklin County  Commonwealth Attorney because Satterley is related an employee in her office, which presented a conflict of interest.

Satterley’s criminal history consists of a combination of  numerous felony, misdemeanor and traffic offenses in Shelby, Anderson and Franklin counties, including escaping from custody, criminal mischief, DUI and possession of marijuana.

His next court date has not yet been scheduled, jail officials said.
