Girl says man sexually abused her for years

A Capshaw man charged with sexual abuse of a child under age 12 has been released from the Limestone County Jail after posting bail of $50,000, records show.

The female victim told a school official she had been sexually abused from ages 10 to 15, said Limestone County Sheriff’s Chief Investigator Capt. Stanley McNatt. The school official reported the incident to the Sheriff’s Office, prompting an investigation by Investigator Leslie Ramsey.

During questioning Friday, Joseph Lindsey Shores, 32, of 11874 Vasser St., admitted he had fondled a girl on multiple occasions, McNatt said.

A check of Alabama sex-offender data shows Shores has no record of sex crimes.
