William E. Norlin, 53, was charged with two counts of Class C felony child molesting, Class C felony sexual misconduct with a minor, Class D felony child seduction and Class D felony performing sexual misconduct in the presence of a minor.
Judge Matthew Headley set Norlin's bond at $25,000 cash or surety. He set Norlin's first pretrial conference for March 12. Norlin said he would hire his own counsel.
According to court documents, Norlin's alleged victim reported the molestation to a Child Protective Services representative on Jan. 20. The victim told police the molestation had begun when the victim was 11 years old.
The victim said Norlin had "brainwashed" her, and that he disguised inappropriate sexual behavior as "educational talks." The victim said Norlin touched her breasts "more times than she could count," court documents said. The victim also said Norlin had laid on top of her while they were both naked, and that Norlin had talked about and demonstrated different sexual positions.
The victim said Norlin would show her pornographic material and masturbate in her presence, but that no sexual intercourse ever occurred.
In an interview, Norlin told police he had written a book as a warning to the victim, had multiple talks with her and had warned her that "all men are predators," court documents said.
Norlin denied ever showing the victim sexual positions, and said that if had had ever touched her breasts it had been "by accident."
Norlin said in court that he understood the allegations against him, but he entered not guilty pleas to all charges and said he wanted "to get all this cleared up."
If convicted on all charges, Norlin could be sentenced to up to 30 years in prison.
