A Statesville man has been charged with six counts of indecent liberties with a child following an investigation by the Iredell County Sheriff’s Office Special Victim’s Unit.

Aaron Lee Poole, 33, of Lippard Farm Road in Statesville, was out of jail on a $75,000 bond awaiting trial for two separate, earlier counts of indecent liberties that were investigated by the Mooresville Police Department.

The new charges stem from a report of abuse from Oct. 18, 2015 through Nov. 25, 2015.

The victim was brought to the Terry Hess Children’s Advocacy Center in Salisbury for an interview. The victim told officials that Poole sexually assaulted her. Statements from others who knew about the incident were also gathered.

Poole’s six additional charges leave him at the Iredell County Detention Center under $200,000 bond.
