Texas Rangers arrested a 52-year-old Yorktown man on June 23 for aggravated sexual assault of a child younger than 14, a first degree felony.
Clifton Bryan Boerm has been released from the DeWitt County Detention Center after posting a $100,000 bond, said DeWitt County Sheriff Jode Zavesky.
Tom Vinger, spokesman for the Texas Department of Public Safety, said, "It is not unusual for the Rangers to be called in on cases like this."
According to the affidavit for arrest warrant issued by DeWitt County Judge Daryl Fowler, the charge against Boerm stems from an incident reported in October 2010 in which he is accused of having intercourse with a 13-year-old girl.
Interviews by Child Protective Services of both the girl and a witness and a Texas Rangers interview of an adult with knowledge of the situation led to the arrest, according to the affidavit.
If indicted and found guilty Boerm could face imprisonment in the Texas Department of Criminal Justice for life or for any term between five and 99 years. In addition to the prison time, he could also be fined up to $10,000, according to the Texas Penal Code.
