FL - Man Faces Charges In 1970s Sexual Assault
CLEARWATER - A 76-year-old man was arrested Tuesday, accused of sexually assaulting an 11-year-old boy 29 years ago, Clearwater police said.
Joseph Aristide Devlin, of 1353 Lotus Path, faces one count of capital sexual battery. He was being held without bond Wednesday at the Pinellas County Jail.
The victim, who is now a man, contacted Clearwater police on the advice of a counselor, said Clearwater police spokesman Wayne Shelor. The man knew his assailant, but the rape had never before been reported to Clearwater police, Shelor said.

I agree. Bravo to him. The perp probably thought he smooth got away with it.
But I thought there was a statute of limitations on molestation/sexual assault? Guess not.
