A Clark County grand jury indicted a 41-year-old man Wednesday on charges of sexually assaulting a teen after allegedly giving her sleeping pills, according to an indictment and warrant.

Patrick Doyle Olson was indicted on four counts of sexual assault with a minor under 14, six counts of lewdness with a child under the age of 14, one count of child abuse and five counts of possessing a visual presentation depicting sexual conduct of a child.

The victim, then 13 years old, told her mother in July 2010 that Olson had been molesting her for several years, often after he gave her adult-strength sleeping pills, the warrant alleges.

Her mother confronted Olson, who allegedly admitted to the molestation, which occurred when the family lived in Overton, according to the warrant.

The girl told Metro Police detectives the alleged molestation began when she was 9 years old, but she did not tell anyone because Olson threatened her, police said in the warrant.

After her daughter told her about the alleged molestation, the mother found CDs and DVDs containing child pornography hidden in boxes and more than a dozen guns in the residence that belonged to Olson, according to the warrant.

A warrant for Olson’s arrest was issued July 24, 2010. He was arrested six days later and booked into the Clark County Detention Center, where he is being held on $210,000 bail, according to jail records.

Olson is scheduled to appear in court March 6.

  1. If convicted, he is going to wish for extra strength sleeping pills to get through the nights in prison.
