Wynonna splits from husband after arrest for sexual assault

Country star Wynonna Judd has filed for divorce a week after her husband's arrest on three charges of aggravated sexual battery on a child under 13. A statement posted on Judd's website reads:

"Wynonna Judd today filed for divorce against her estranged husband, D.R. Roach, citing irreconcilable differences. Roach was arrested on March 22, 2007 in Abilene, TX and charged with three counts of aggravated sexual battery against a minor. 'I am obviously devastated. Our family will pull together, begin the healing process 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,' Judd said. Roach had been seeking treatment for drug and alcohol addiction at the Shades of Hope Treatment Center in Buffalo Gap, Texas since February 21, 2007. The couple was married in November, 2003."
A Metropolitan Nashville Police Department spokesperson did not offer specifics about the alleged victim's connection to Roach but said his arrest stems from an investigation by the police department's sex crimes unit that began in late February. Roach is being held on $750,000 bail.
