SNOW HILL, Md.- A Willards man is facing child sex charges following an indictment by a Worcester County grand jury.

David Wayne Tatman, 56, is charged with two counts of third-degree sex offense, one count of second-degree child abuse, two counts of child abuse: custodian, and one count of unnatural or perverted practice.

Detectives with the Worcester County Bureau of Investigation said Tatman's arrest stemmed from a several month-long investigation that began with a former victim of his filing a report with the Worcester County Sheriff's Office.

Detectives said that through further investigation, evidence was obtained that indicated that Tatman had committed the alleged crimes.

After being served with the warrant Wednesday, Tatman was ordered held in the Worcester County Jail on a $200,000 bond.

Editor's note: In the initial news release sent to the media about David Tapman's arrest, the Worcester County Bureau of Investigation included a mugshot of a man whom the WCBI later said was not Tapman. The WCBI took responsibility for the error and asked all news agencies to retract the original photo and to update the article with the correct one.
