Harold Lee Massey, 62, of Littleton, faces 50 counts of indecent liberties with a minor child and 31 counts of statutory sex offense, Halifax County Sheriff Wes Tripp said in a statement.
Detectives B.C. Griffin and Robert Hale investigated the case and the charges stem from offenses allegedly committed from 2006 to 2012.
The alleged victim is a male juvenile who was 7 at the time the offenses reportedly began and 13 when they ended.
Tripp this evening declined to immediately comment on the relationship between the victim and alleged suspect. “We received this alleged complaint and have been investigating it for some time.”
Tripp declined comment on why the allegations against Massey have just recently came to light.
The sheriff said, without elaboration, the alleged offenses were committed at a location in Halifax County.
Massey was in the process of being taken into custody this evening and has received a $250,000 bond and February 15 court date.
