Versailles man pleads not guilty to sexual abuse charges

A 76-year-old Versailles man was arraigned on sex abuse charges in Woodford Circuit Court on Nov. 2. Donald Wayne Drury pleaded not guilty to three counts of first-degree sexual abuse and a single count of third-degree sodomy. According to an indictment, Drury committed the sexual abuse offenses when he allegedly subjected a male juvenile (younger than 16 years old) to sexual contact. The indictment further alleges that Drury, a former Kentucky Vehicle Enforcement officer, subjected the juvenile to deviant sexual intercourse. The alleged sex crimes occurred from Aug. 15, 2014, to Sept. 1, 2016, the indictment stated. The parents of a 15-year-old boy told police that they were friends with Drury, who they entrusted to pick up their son from school and keep him when they could not, according to authorities. Police reported that Drury purchased clothing, electronics and other expensive items in exchange for the boy's loyalty and "consent" to engage in illegal sex acts. Drury allegedly discouraged the boy from talking to a therapist and told him that they'd both go to jail if he contacted the police, an affidavit stated. Drury is scheduled to return to Woodford Circuit Court for a status hearing on Dec. 7 at 1 p.m.
