GASTONIA, N.C. (WJZY) – More indecent liberties charges are being sought against a Gastonia pair after a second child victim came forward, Gaston County police said Monday.
In May, officers began investigating Gastonia residents Ashley Hardee, 32, and Jerry Gillespie, 36, after receiving a report from child services, who had received a report from a social worker.
Following their arrest, an additional child came forward, the police report indicated.
Both are now facing additional charges of indecent liberties with a child.
They are both in custody and are being held on a $500,000 secured bond.
