A Wise County Sheriff's Office employee was arrested Friday for eight felony sexual offenses.

He was arrested and charged with one count of aggravated sexual assault of a child and seven counts of sexual assault of a child.

He was booked into the Wise County jail and his bond was set at $120,000 for the first charge and $75,000 for each of the others.

He has been suspended from the job without pay pending the outcome of an investigation.
