    A 62-year-old man has been arrested 15 years after authorities say he sexually abused a child in Loudoun County, Virginia.

    A grand jury indicted Kevin O'Connor, of Sterling, on Aug. 13. O'Connor was arrested and charged Thursday with numerous counts of sexual assault and battery as well as taking indecent liberties with a child, the Loudoun County Sheriff's Office said.

    Police said the victim was between 13 and 15 years old at the time of the abuse in 2003.

    The alleged abuse was reported to the sheriff's office in May 2003 and prosecution was declined due to insufficient evidence, the sheriff's office said.

    Detectives reexamined the case in 2012 and leads developed through interviews led to O'Connor's indictment, according to the sheriff's office.

    O'Connor is in jail without bond.
