Staff Report • Nov 20, 2013 at 10:59 AM

An 86-year-old Jonesborough resident has been arrested on charges that he had sexual contact with a child over a 3 1/2 year period.

Robert Lee Green, 318 Cherokee Mountain Road, was jailed early Tuesday morning after a Washington County grand jury indicted him on a charge of aggravated sexual battery.

According a Criminal Court presentment, Green had sexual contact with a girl — now age 12 — on or about Jan. 1, 2008, and on other days between then and Oct. 15, 2011.

He was released from the Washington County Detention Center on $25,000 bond later Tuesday. A Criminal Court hearing was set for Jan. 21.
