Limestone man accused of sexual abuse of child under 12

Limestone County Sheriff’s officials have arrested a Georgia man on charges of sexually abusing a child under age 12 back in 2010.

Chief Investigator Stanley McNatt said investigators on Wednesday arrested Bryan Justin Myers, 36, of 3229 Margaret Drive, Montgomery, on 2010 grand jury warrants charging him with sexual abuse of child under age 12, first-degree sodomy and first-degree attempted rape.

Myers was picked up from Smith State Prison in Georgia, where he had been released from prison, and arrested on the Limestone County warrants.

McNatt said Myers had been serving time in a Georgia prison for abusing the same child.

“Some of the abuse occurred in Limestone County,” McNatt explained.

Limestone County Investigator Eric King, who died April 2, 2011, conducted the investigation of Myers, which led to his indictment on the charges in 2010.
