Man Arresed After an Investigation Reveals Child Sex Abuse
A Kingsport man remains jailed without bond after numerous sexual child abuse charges. The Sullivan County Sheriff’s Office began investigating Larry Sumner after receiving a referral from Child Protective Services. Based upon statements taken from the victim a search warrant was obtained for Sumner’s home. There, detectives found evidence that suggested that there were multiple victims involved and abuse dating back to the early 90s. A Sullivan County Grand Jury indicted Larry Sumner on 31 counts of rape, 31 counts of statutory rape by an authority figure, 31 counts of sexual exploitation of a minor, and 11 counts of contributing to the delinquency of a minor. Those charges involve one victim. Sullivan County officials believe there are at least 9 other victims. Detectives are in the process of interviewing those victims. Additional charges are pending. Anyone who has information concerning a potential victim in this case is asked to contact the Sheriff’s Office Criminal Investigations Division at 423-279-7506. (JH)
