CLERMONT, Iowa (KCRG) - The Fayette County Sheriff’s Office has filed additional charges against a Clermont man accused of child sex abuse.

According to a criminal complaint, 45-year-old Matthew Nordrum allegedly abused a three-year-old girl at a daycare.

The sex abuse detailed in the criminal complaint comes in addition to details released by the Fayette County Sheriff’s Office on Tuesday which alleged that Nordrum also sexually assaulted a victim under the age of 5 at his Clermont home.

On Thursday, more charges were filed involving an additional three victims.

Nordrum is now charged with two counts of Sex Abuse in the 2nd Degree and one count of Indecent Exposure in the Presence of a Minor.
