An east Texas man is out on bond tonight, charged in a nearly 20 year old sexual assault case. 74 year old Fred McDowell turned himself in at the Gregg County Sheriff's Department. A woman told authorities McDowell sexually assaulted her in 1988 when she was under the age of 14. Under state law, the statute of limitations on child sexual assault cases does not run out until 10 years after the victim's 18th birthday. McDowell is free after posting 20-thousand dollars bond.
