MOUNT PLEASANT, Texas (AP) - An elderly East Texas man has been charged with felonies for allegedly sexually assaulting a disabled person at an assisted living facility.

Mount Pleasant Police Chief Wayne Isbell says 84-year-old L.C. Terry was arrested Wednesday and charged with four counts of first-degree aggravated assault of a disabled individual. He says the assaults occurred over several months at the Mount Pleasant facility and were reported on Saturday.

Isbell has not released other information about the alleged assaults.

Terry is being held at the Titus County Jail. Bond has not been set and online jail records didn’t indicate an attorney.

The Mount Pleasant Daily Tribune reports Terry is the pastor of the Spring Hill Missionary Baptist Church.
