Walter Edmund Nash faces a total of four new charges against a female who at the time of the alleged assault was four years old. The alleged offence against her dates date back to 1988. This development renews concern by the EPS Child Protection Section about the number of children who have been through the day home and who may have been victimized.
60-year-old Walter Edmund Nash faces two counts of sexual assault, one count of invitation to sexual touching and one count of sexual interference.
The Montrose area day home operated by Walter Nash and his wife had its license revoked in 2002, yet continued to operate as an unlicensed day home. Children in the couple’s care ranged in age from infants to preteens. Nash’s wife was not charged in connection with the case.
