Bail has been set at $100,000 for a 31-year-old Beatrice man suspected of sexually abusing a 6-year-old boy.
John Richard Meyer was arrested Aug. 20 on suspicion of first-degree sexual assault for abusing the boy in a Beatrice home. Police say the boy told workers at his day care center, who reported it to child welfare officials.
Meyer remained jailed Saturday and could not be reached for comment, but the newspaper reports that he denied the allegations to police.
Meyer is set to appear in Gage County Court to face the charge on Sept. 11.
