Ex-Tennessee firefighter charged in child sex abuse case

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) – A former Tennessee firefighter has been charged in a sexual abuse case involving a child.

The Tennessee Bureau of Investigation says 37-year-old David Wilber was arrested Friday on three counts of sexual battery by an authority figure.

The TBI says in a news release that an investigation found the child was sexually abused on several occasions between August 2014 and August 2015.

Portland Mayor Ken Wilber, who is David Wilber’s uncle, says in the news release that his nephew resigned from the Portland fire department last week.

Sumner County Jail records show David Wilber was released on bond.
