A 58-year-old registered sex offender was bound over to Laramie County District Court Thursday on six counts of sexual abuse of a minor.

Paul Daniel Hatcher, of Chugwater, is accused of molesting his son and nephew at his home in Laramie County between 2014 and 2015 when the boys were six years old.

Sheriff's Det. Aaron Foy says the department began investigating Hatcher in September 2016 after the boys' mothers reported the alleged sexual abuse.

Foy says Hatcher's nephew told a forensic interviewer that Hatcher made him touch his penis, put his mouth on his penis and get on his hands and knees while Hatcher performed anal sex on him.

Hatcher is currently being held in the Laramie County jail on a $15,000 cash bond. His arraignment date has not yet been set.
