A 23-year-old Cheyenne man has been bound over to Laramie County District Court on a charge of third-degree sexual abuse of a minor.

According to preliminary hearing testimony, the alleged victim told investigators that Cody Brown -- one of her mother's roommates -- woke her up and started touching her private parts under her clothes.

The incident is alleged to have occurred in October 2018, when the girl was seven years old.

Brown's bond was set at $5,000 cash or surety. If convicted, he could face up to 15 years in prison.
