A Dickson man is facing charges he sexually assaulted four of the seven foster children who were currently living in his home.
First Assistant District Attorney Heather Cooper on Wednesday filed four counts of rape by instrumentation against 60-year-old Steven Anglin. The charges allege the assaults occurred during the past year.
Anglin was arrested late Monday by Dickson police after the department received information concerning the allegations from Department of Human Services child welfare workers.
Anglin made an initial appearance Wednesday afternoon in Carter County District Court before special District Judge Thomas Baldwin. Bond was set at $300,000. A preliminary conference is set for July 15.
