A 65-year-old Statesville area man has been arrested and charged with 69 counts of first-degree sexual offense against a child under age 12.
Michael Thomas Chambers was in the Iredell County jail Wednesday on $1 million bail.
Sheriff Darren Campbell said a report was filed with his office on June 16 about a child being assaulted in Chambers’ north Iredell home over six years, starting in 2009.
Chambers was arrested after sheriff’s investigators interviewed the victim at the Dove House Children’s Advocacy Center in Statesville, interviewed more witnesses and collected evidence.
