There were some cases involving sex abuse of a minor & child abuse.


Frederick, Md (KM) Case involving sex abuse of a minor and child abuse were just two of the indictments returned on Friday by the Frederick County Grand Jury.

Juan Pablo Samayoa-Delcid, 30, of Frederick, is charged four counts of 2nd-degree rape, and three counts of sex abuse of a minor. State’s Attorney Charlie Smith says this was for a series of events over a four-year period. “The incidents allegedly began when the young girl was as young as eight years old, and occurred until she was 12. A really horrible set of facts,” Smith says.

Sean Michael Willette, 26, of Thurmont is charged with two counts  of 2nd-degree assault and two counts of 2nd-degree child abuse for an incident which occurred on March 4th, 2020. “He was babysitter for a three and four-year-old,  and allegedly punched the three-year-old in the face;  also punched the four-year-old in the stomach. So he was indicted on child abuse charges for that,” says Smith.

In another  case, the Grand Jury indicted William Yoro, 42, who has no fixed address, on  two counts of 2nd-degree arson, reckless endangerment and violating a protective order. Smith says Yoro had a bad relationship with the victim and there was a protective order. “But this apparently was a situation where he came out of some woods nearby, actually set fire to a car, which was in close proximity to another car which also caught on fire. This happened over in the Spring Ridge Development. So also a terrible set of facts,” he said. This incident occurred on July 15th, 2020.

Nicholas David Anderson, 33, of Frederick, was indicted on Friday for 1st- and 2nd-degree assault, possessing a rifle or shotgun with a felony conviction, possessing  a rifle or shotgun with a disqualifying crime, and use of a firearms in a crime of violence for an incident on July 30th, 2020. “This happened over off of Yellow Spring Road. He was drunk. He hit his wife in the head with a shotgun. He pointed the shotgun at her,” Smith says.

Also indicted on Friday was Daniel Covey 49, of Frederick whose charged with 2nd-degree burglary, theft between $100 and $1500, malicious destruction of property less than $1,000 and possession of drug paraphernalia for a break-in which occurred on July 21st,  “He broke into 47 South Carroll Street, which is an office building which makes it a 2nd-degree burglary not a 1st-degree burglary,” says Smith. “He rummaged around, through some drawers. And ultimately through some surveillance video, we were able to identify him and he stands indicted on those counts.”

Other indictments handed down include:

*Michael D. Short, 39, of Frederick, whose charged with 1st-degree burglary, 3rd-degree burglary and theft less than $100 for an incident on June 29th, 2020.

* Cassadi Anne Andrews, 29, of Cumberland, Md, whose charged with possession of a large amount, possession with intent to distribute and possession of fentanyl; and possession of cocaine, for an incident which occurred on January 30th, 2020.

With indictments by the Grand Jury, all of these cases move to Circuit Court where trial dates will be scheduled.

The State’s Attorney’s Office says indictments are charging documents alleging criminal  conduct, and all defendants are innocent until proven guilty.
