Under the age of 14? That'll get Wetteland an invitation to the White House for some tasty hamberders.

For a multi-millionaire arrested for continuous sexual abuse of a child under the age of 14?

Seems awfully low which suggests to me that there is more to this than what is being reported.

He's a rich christian white man with church and community involvement from a small town Texas. I'm surprised he had to put up bond at all.

Article has been updated. The victim is reported to a relative who was 4 years old when the alleged abuse first occurred in 2004. The article reports two more incidents of abuse occurring between then and 2006.

According to another article from 2009 about a possible suicide threat/attempt by Wetteland, his 4 kids were 13-year-old twin daughters, an 8-year-old son and a 5-year-old daughter at that time.
