Marysville police arrested William Inderbitzen on Tuesday after a four-month investigation produced evidence suggesting he repeatedly molested a child relative over a seven-year period.
Inderbitzen, 42, was in jail previously until 2015 for possession of child pornography. He was forced to register as a sex offender after his release.
The Sutter County Sheriff’s Office gave the Marysville Police Department a tip about Inderbitzen’s alleged misconduct after the 15-year-old alleged victim contacted them. The girl told Marysville detectives that Inderbitzen had molested her from the time she was in first grade until she was in seventh grade. Inderbitzen lived in Marysville at the time, but has since moved to Yuba City.
The victim told police that Inderbitzen molested her while her mother was at work and her aunt was watching her. She was molested at least once a week over the seven-year span, she said.
