The Pulaski County Sheriff’s Office says a man is behind bars for alleged sexual abuse of children. Deputies arrested 69 year old Waynard Ray Hughes of Science Hill this week after responding to a 911 call of possible child abuse at Hughes’ home. Officers and Social Services interviewed two girls, ages 11 and 13. Hughes was then arrested and charged with rape, six counts of sodomy and two counts of an unlawful transaction of an illegal sex act with a minor under 16 years of age. The investigation is ongoing.
