A Stillwater County man was arrested Tuesday and jailed on $100,000 bond on allegations of child abuse.

Scott M. Maddox, 45, was arrested Tuesday by the Stillwater County Sheriff’s Office for the alleged felony sexual abuse of a child. His bail was set at $100,000 and Maddox was scheduled to make an appearance in 22nd Judicial District Court Thursday. He faces six felony charges and one misdemeanor charge.

The alleged crimes span a two-year period from 2010 and 2012, and again in 2018, according to court documents.

The victim reported the alleged abuse to her mother through a video in 2018. The victim’s mother confronted Maddox with the allegations and he initially denied them, according to court documents. When the mother confronted Maddox a second time, “he didn’t deny it,” according to court documents.

The case was investigated by Stillwater County Sheriff’s Investigator Skylar Steele.
