GILBERT, AZ — A Gilbert man has been indicted on 16 sex-related crimes against children.

Last week ABC15 reported on the arrest of George Little for child molestation.

A grand jury has now indicted Little on 16 sex-related charges, including sexual conduct with a minor, indecent exposure, child molestation and public sexual indecency.

Gilbert police have now identified six of Little's victims. The victims were usually between three and seven years old.

On May 22, a woman alerted Gilbert police that Little, a family friend, molested her daughter seven years ago when she was a young child.

Court records show that Little began molesting girls about seven years ago with his latest molestation allegedly occurring in June of this year.

According to court documents, Little was a "church volunteer who works with children" and a "volunteer with the Girl Scouts." The aerospace engineer was also a foster parent. The children he was fostering have since been taken from the home.

Little was arrested on July 11 and given a $75,000 bond.

His wife Leslie who, in an interview with ABC15, denied knowing anything about the abuses saying Little was living "a double life."

She has since been arrested for failure to report child abuse.
