The Lee County Sheriff’s Office charged a Lee County man today with 58 offenses related to alleged repeated abuse over eight years of a minor.
Bruce Wayne Vaughn, 50, was charged with 19 counts of Statutory sex offense with a child, 19 counts of felony child abuse, 18 counts of indecent liberties with a child, and one count each of statutory sex offense with a child 15 years old or younger and incest.
These charges stem from an investigation that started in August 2019 and are alleged to have taken place over a period of time between 2011-2019.
Vaughn was shot by a Johnston County deputy in December 2019 in a raid by a SWAT team at a Cleveland, N.C., hotel. He was wanted on sex offense charges at the time of the shooting.
Vaughn is being held under $19,000,000 secured bond.
