Bradberry

Man accused of sexually abusing estranged wife

BUCKHANNON – A Buckhannon man accused of sexually abusing his estranged wife is being held in the Tygart Valley Regional Jail on a $40,000 cash or surety bond.

Christopher Bradberry, 44, was charged with first-degree sexual abuse, a felony, following an incident that allegedly occurred Monday, Nov. 12.

According to the file in the Upshur County Magistrate Clerk’s office, investigating officer Senior Trooper P.J. Robinette with the Buckhannon detachment of the West Virginia State Police said he received a sexual abuse complaint from Bradberry’s estranged wife, the victim, through the 911 Upshur County Communication Center.

Robinette subsequently met the victim at the state police headquarters in Buckhannon. She told Robinette that Bradberry “held her down against her will” and performed a lewd sexual act while restraining her.

In the file, Robinette writes that stains on the abdominal area of the victim’s shirt were consistent with her account of the incident.

Magistrate Kay Hurst set bond at $40,000 cash or surety and ordered Bradberry to have no contact with the victim. He has also been ordered not to be in possession of any firearms or ammunition.

The penalty for first-degree sexual abuse is confinement in the state penitentiary for one to five years and/or a fine of up to $10,000.
