An Augusta County man is accused of molesting a girl he was supposed to be caring for.
Thurman Elridge Sorrells, 60, was arrested over the weekend on five counts of aggravated sexual battery.
The Augusta Sheriff's Office says he was a relative and caretaker of the victim. Investigators say the abuse began when she was 5 years old, and continued for several years.
The girl recently reported the crimes, which allegedly happened at Sorrells' house near Grottoes.
