Jeffrey Marshall Sempler
An eastern Lincoln County man raped a female family member for many of her childhood years, the Sheriff’s Office said.
Jeffrey Marshall Sempler, 58, of 4848 Maralane Trail in Denver, had sexual relations with the victim from the time she was six years old until 14, according to an agency press release.
Deputies took Sempler into custody on Friday and placed him under a $250,000 secured bond.
The alleged incidents took place while the two lived in New York and continued after they moved to Lincoln County, the release said.
Sempler has been charged with four different felony offenses including one count each of second-degree rape, second-degree sexual offense and indecent liberties with a child along with two counts of sexual offense intercourse by guardian.
The victim is now an adult and told local Sheriff’s detectives she was sexually abused and raped nearly a decade ago.
An investigation is ongoing, and deputies said they will notify New York authorities of any details that emerge involving sex crimes there.
