SPRINGFIELD, Ore. (AP) - A Springfield man has been accused of sexually abusing a child in California a decade ago.

The Register-Guard reports (http://bit.ly/29oVAyo ) that the 84-year-old man, who previously lived in California, is being held in the Lane County Jail after police say he confessed to the crimes.

Police say they went to speak to the man after the victim recently disclosed what occurred. Police say the man confessed both to a detective and again on video the nest day.

Detective David Grice says the victim made the disclosure within the 12-year statute of limitations on the charges
