After the grand jury convened on Monday, Jerry Phillips was indicted for six counts of aggravated sexual battery.
The indictment came almost two years after the allegations were initially levied.
In 2007, Phillips was accused of molesting a then 7 –year- old girl who was a relative of his girlfriend at the time, LaFollette Police Detective Sgt. Jason Henegar said following the arrest.
But when the child was interviewed during that investigation, she didn’t disclose the exact nature of the alleged abuse, Henegar said.
