A Richmond man was arrested on a Madison County warrant this week, on charges of incest of a victim under the age of 12, first-degree sexual abuse of a victim younger than 12, distribution of obscene matter to minors, two counts of unlawful transaction with a minor, and three counts of first-degree sodomy of a victim under 12.

The citation states that 51-year-old Daniel Howard of North Poplar Street allegedly engaged in sexual acts with minors who police believe were only 6 and 7 years old at the time of the abuse.

The warrant details multiple occasions of sexual abuse on both minors since late 2017.

Howard was originally taken into custody by Fayette County Sheriff’s Office and later transported to the Madison County Detention Center. He remains lodged in the jail at this time.
