POLK COUNTY, TX (KTRE) -

Deputies with the Polk County Sheriff’s Office arrested a 71-year-old man on Tuesday in connection to allegations that he sexually assaulted an 11-year-old girl four years ago.

Charles Yeager, of Livingston, was booked into the Polk County Jail on a first-degree aggravated sexually assault of a child charge. He was released from the jail earlier this week after he posted a bail amount of $100,000.

According to a press release from the Polk County Sheriff’s Office, a 15-year-old child came forward on July 20 and made a sexual assault outcry. The child said Yeager sexually assaulted him or her when the child was 11.

A forensic interview was conducted with the child a few days later at Childrenz Haven, the press release stated. 

An arrest warrant was then issued for Yeager. He was arrested without incident and taken to the county jail, the affidavit stated.
