RED LODGE — A man who was already facing charges in Carbon County District Court for allegedly raping a 4-year-old girl is now accused of raping a woman who was partially immobilized after a car crash.

Gene Deveraux was arraigned this week on three additional sex crimes, including sexual assault and sexual intercourse without consent. He’s now charged with a total of six felony sex crimes.

The initial charges were filed in Jan. 2017 and the subsequent charges were filed in March of 2018.

The younger victim reported the crimes in December of 2016 after she learned Deveraux was living with two young girls and feared they would be sexually abused.

The victim told detectives that Deveraux molested her for several years starting in 2005 when she was 4 years old.

On one occasion, the girl said Deveraux forced himself on her when she got out of the shower and said they “should always do that” after she showered.

The girl said Deveraux told her not to tell anyone about the sexual abuse.

Investigators later learned about an adult victim, who said she was raped by Deveraux on several occasions.

The woman reported that she had been in a car crash and suffered significant injuries to her pelvis and legs.

The adult victim said she told Deveraux she did not want to have sex because her broken bones were healing and she was in pain but he did not care.

The woman said she was afraid of physical retribution if she refused.

It was unclear Friday if Deveraux was in custody.
