Troubled country singer Wynonna Judd has been hit by another devastating blow: Her husband has been thrown in jail for allegedly sexually abusing a child.
Daniel Roach — Wynonna’s second husband — was arrested March 22 at the Shades of Hope rehab center in Buffalo Gap, Texas — the same place where Wynonna battled a food addiction just a year ago. Roach, say insiders, was being treated for an undisclosed addiction.
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 42-year-old singer has two children from her first marriage to Nashville yacht broker Arch Kelley — Elijah, 12 and Grace, 10. Despite a nasty divorce from Wynonna in 1999, her ex-husband was shocked when he heard of Roach’s arrest. “He’s a good guy,” Kelley told The ENQUIRER.
But for Wynonna — who’s faced her share of struggles over the years, including a 2003 DUI arrest — the latest crisis may mean the end of her five-year marriage.
