Gadsden Man Charged with Molesting Child and Stealing Shoes

A 53 year-old Gadsden man arrested in the spring for stealing 10 thousand dollars’ worth of red wing shoes from his former employer, Hick’s Family Shoes, is now charged with molesting a child who had a sleepover at his house. Bryan McDaniel is indicted on charges of sexual abuse of a child less than 12 years old stemming from an incident at his home more than a decade ago when the victim was 11 years old. The boy was a friend of his son and McDaniel allegedly molested him while his own son was sleeping.
