Deputies: Man shows up at jail, confesses to sex abuse

Posted: Updated:

A 35-year-old Salem man walked into the Marion County Jail on Thursday and told sheriff's deputies he wanted to confess he sexually abused a 12-year-old girl, authorities said.

Eddie Luter told the deputy he had been sexually abusing the girl for months at an apartment he shares with his wife, according to a Marion County sheriff's spokesman.

Deputies said Luter told them the assaults began in January, then continued through March, and that his wife wasn't aware of the abuse because it took place while she was at work.

The girl was known to him, and has since been placed in the care of a relative.

Luter was arrested and booked into jail on six counts of first-degree rape and six counts of first-degree sex abuse.
