(Michigan City, IN) - Charges have been filed in connection with allegations of incest in Michigan City from over a decade ago.
52-year-old Emerson Limbrick, Jr., is charged with 18 counts of incest. Limbrick allegedly sexually abused a female relative over a several-year period, beginning when she was in middle school. Authorities say the charges stem from the alleged victim recently coming out with the claims.
According to court documents, the alleged victim described Limbrick as an alcoholic who sometimes beat her until she was unconscious. The woman also alleged Limbrick required her to participate in sex acts to avoid beatings and hang out with friends.
Limbrick was taken into custody Friday in Gary, Indiana, where he lived at the time of his arrest.
