MIDLAND COUNTY - More than a decade later, a Midland County man has been charged with sexually assaulting a girl over several years.

45-year-old Russell Betterton was arrested on Wednesday.

He's accused of having sexual contact with a 12 year-old girl several times.

We're told it started back in 1999 and lasted until 2002.

Investigators say the crimes weren't reported until just last month.

Deputies are still investigating.

They tell NewsWest 9 more suspected victims could be coming forward.

Betterton remains in jail on a $25,000 bond.
