A conviction on each of the counts filed against Ezra Herschberger could result in a 25-year to life sentence.
Bee County grand jurors reviewing the evidence in the case prepared by Sheriff’s Office Investigator Steve Linam agreed that there was enough information to warrant a trial in district court.
Linam alleged that Herschberger committed aggravated sexual assault of a child and indecency of a child offenses involving four girls under the age of 14 from about Feb. 4, 2008, until June 6, 2014.
The indictment listed a number of instances in which the defendant allegedly committed the acts and named all four victims.
Deputies arrested Herschberger three months ago. His bond at the time was set at $400,000.
District Judge Starr Bauer opted to keep the bond at the same amount.
The defendant has been in custody in the Bee County Jail since he was arrested.
