Fargo man faces two child-molesting charges

A 59-year-old Fargo man is accused of sexually abusing a girl under age 13 and faces child molestation charges in Clay County District Court, court records show.

Darrell Marion Wiebesick was charged Friday with two counts of first-degree criminal sexual conduct.

He made an initial court appearance Tuesday, where bail was set at $200,000 without conditions and at $75,000 with conditions.

Wiebesick is accused of inappropriately touching the girl multiple times beginning this summer, with the latest allegation linked to a Dec. 12 incident, according to the court complaint.

The girl, whom Wiebesick knew, was interviewed by police on Dec. 15, when she described the alleged abuse to police, court records show.
