Wynonna Judd Files for Divorce … Dan R. Roach Charged with 3 counts of Aggravated Sexual Battery against a Minor


Nashville Country music singer, Wynonna Judd, has filed for D-I-V-O-R-C-E from her Wynonna_juddestranged husband, Dan R. Roach. Wynonna Judd cited irreconcilable differences as a reason for divorce in the complaint filed in the Nashville suburb of Williamson County. IRRECONCILABLE DIFFERENCES!!! That’s the understatement of 2007. How about the fact that Dan Roach was charged with three counts of aggravated sexual battery against a minor? A minor under the age of 13!

Wynonna Judd filed for divorce Tuesday from her estranged husband, less than a week after his arrest in Texas on sex charges involving a minor. Dan R. Roach, 49, was arrested Thursday in Abilene and charged with three counts of aggravated sexual battery against a child younger than 13 in Nashville, police said. (AP)

A comment from Wynonna’s web site states the following:

“I am obviously devastated. Our family will pull together, begin the healing process and hopefully – by the Grace of God – become stronger. We will move forward with our faith, family and our friends to find resolution to this difficult situation.”

NATIONAL ENQUIRER EXCLUSIVE: Wynonna Judd’s Husband Arrested — Charged with Sexual Abuse of Minor

Roach was held at the Taylor County Jail in Abilene, Texas, on a $750,000 bond. He is charged by a grand jury with three counts of aggravated sexual assault on a child, according to Don Aaron, public affairs officer for the Nashville police department. Roach had been Wynonna’s bodyguard for 10 years before the couple became engaged in August 2001. They married on November 22, 2003, in Tennessee.

The indictment is the result of an investigation by the (local police department’s) sex crimes unit that began in late February of this year,” Aaron said. Roach will be returned to Nashville in the next few days, he said.

The sexual battery charges against Roach were defined as inappropriate fondling and touching but not penetration, Aaron said. No other information was disclosed. (Reuters)

      “aggravated sexual battery” Why do they always used this cleaner term…call it what is was child rape.

      I have no idea if what she means by family also includes the victim but if not she doesn’t have her priorities right IMO.

      If I’m not mistaken, Wynonna is herself a former survivor. I do not know her personally, however, I believe that she would certainly be praying for the victim and share alongside with this childs pain and suffering. No doubt in my mind, what so ever.

      I’m surprised her husband is standing to take the mugshot photo and I can say, it was an act of Grace, with her personal faith and beliefs that he wasn’t taken out behind the barn and done in for. Need I say more!


      I have immense sadness and am outraged that this poor child has had to endur this heinous act of power over her and more needs to be done to protect children. Perhaps, God will use Wynonna’s et all, to become the voice of many children who are silenced by their preditors, not to speak up and who live in real fear… I too, will pray for this child and all victims. More needs to be done, to protect children, keep these preditors, pedofiles, incarcirated ~ for life. It’s difficult enough catching them, and to have them released into society is the worst crime of all… only allowing them back to prey upon our youth. It needs to stop.

      I have deep resepct for Wynonna, perhaps, she can be a strong voice for children and victims of heinous sexual crimes, rape, abuse, sex slavery.

      I am sorry, that the life of this child is changed forever. Her pain and suffering is heartfelt and I’m truly sorry for her, her family and also for Wynonna.

      God give them strength… and as a Mother,woman,survivor,advocate for victims of abuse, I can not speak for Wynonna, however, I have deep respect and admiration for her and if anyone could empathyze with this child, it is her and I’m sure, she shares this childs pain suffering and her family’s suffering and devestation by this monsters evil acts… all are devestated by this, save this sick monster.

      Bless this child, and all the children who are silenced for some perv’s overpowering sick sexual acts… it is sickening that America tolerates this and it needs to stop!

      Wynonna, I’d shoulder you any day to speak out against the heinous crimes against all children and perhaps, He is calling you to come forward and be a voice for the multitude who have been affected by this. We do not have to live as victims, but can learn to live victoriously… it is not our fault, nor should we be guilted and shamed by an evil act of monsters out there who prey upon children.

      for Mike above, I hear you… however, I believe, that the first person Wynonna thought about, was this dear innocent child… and I can guarantee, her heart aches for this childs suffering this horrible rape, that it has triggered her Post Traumatic Stress Syndrome that former victims experience every time we hear about this stuff. All our hearts ache when children are assaulted… it goes deeper with a former victim.

      My prayers are with this dear little girl and her family, Wynonna and all former victims of abuse.

      Our legislators need to be written and I encourage everyone reading this, to ask them to enforce stronger laws changing & enforcing that perps and preditors serve life sentances ~ I will never understand why they are released back into society… every day, we hear about the horrors of crimes committed against children… Does America devalue children this much?

      When any child/adult is a victim of abuse, it is murder upon their soul… thankfully, you can’t kill the spirit~!
      Become part of a strong voice, call your legislators! Do something and pray for all survivors and pray especially those and their families left behind who did not survive these criminal heinous monstrous acts.

      Usually perps don’t stop at one child with their evil acts.

      Let’s pray too, that Dan Roach didn’t harm Wynonna’s own two children not to mention others he’s had access to.

      Hi Kitty, (my daughter uses that nickname too)

      Like alcoholism, sexual abuse does follow families. Hard to break such a cycle whether it’s a family of overeaters, undereaters, alcoholics, drug addicts, porno addicts…we ALWAYS become a production of our upbringing if we cannot break those links through recognizing them.

      Why a child victim often grows to (a) become a victim of an abuser in adulthood, (b) become an abuser themselves, or (c) marrying one who abuses the children in the way they were abused goes back to the fact humans cannot help but embrace what destroys them. So freaking weird but true.

      If Wynonna is a victim of such an horrific abuse, she was most likely drawn to this man without understanding why. Something inside her from her past pulled her in. She couldn’t have known what the true nature of this monster was. I read the statement on her website, and the obvious fact she did NOT mention prayer for the victim’s family screams to be it was her won 10 yr. old daughter. What a shame!!!!

      We do not call these creatures PREDITORS for no reason.A lion doesn’t come bounding across the plain roaring loudly as if it’s trying to say, “here I come gazelle!!!” It creeps up quietly then runs with 100% of everything it has at the target.

      Sexual preditors have basically lost their humanity and become “human-animal”. Fully running on impulse and unconcerned about right or wrong as they are the center of their own universes (their own god). These folks KNOW the difference, just do not care as the desire to be good has long gone. They are offended by good. Don’t believe me? Take a very, short look at the liberal-left. Only takes a minute….


    6. kitty on March 29th, 2007 1:07 pm

      Amen sista~

      Well said and I couldn’t agree with you more.

      It’s such a shame that it even exists in our society… and how our society tolerates it is evil in itself.

      Let’s pray, he didn’t abuse other children… but my gut is telling me otherwise ~ as I’m sure, you’d agree… knowing how these monsters operate. They are so good at what they do ~ truly…

      Children need to be taught that it’s not typically the “stranger” to be concerned about… it’s usually closer than that.

      Having never been divorced, I’ve always wondered how you love someone, then just stop. This is a situation where I do not think that would be a problem. I can not imagine the immediate disdain she must have felt. Many people will have to spend years, if not a lifetime, healing from this idiots selfish choices.

    8. Brandy on April 20th, 2007 12:39 am

      I just stumbled across this site and posting. It seems like this man has already been tried and convicted. We do not know all the facts in this case.

      I, myself, am a survivor of childhood molestation, but I do not assume that everyone accused, is guilty.

      Let the justice system do it’s job. Only time will tell if he is guilty or not. Everyone may be surprised at the outcome of this situation.


    9. Leyla on October 9th, 2012 10:53 am

      You know,,,, I am also a survivor of childhood molestation. I like Catina do not automatically assume everyone accused of being an offender actually offended. I do not believe all “Sex Offenders” should be imprisoned for life. And you keep asking how our country can let such evil lurk… You also should realize that A.) I am of the younger generation. and B.) A lot of female children try to be adults ie.. Act like, dress, and honestly look like grown women. I feel bad and empathize with the children that are harmed and hurt by abuse, but you know I feel some parents should be held responsable for the way that they let their CHILDREN leave their homes. If you let your mature looking 14 year old daughter dress and act like a woman of 18-20 then people are going to think she is of that age. And if asked her age and she lies…. then what… an innocent person that was themselves manipulated is now labled a sex offender for life…. I ask you… Where is the justice in that?
