Posted: Updated:
Vicksburg, MS - A Warren County man accused of molesting a child over a period of six years more than two decades ago has been arrested.
    
Sheriff Martin Pace tells The Vicksburg Post (http://bit.ly/1bmgTJa ) that 51-year-old Johnny R. Johnson was arrested Thursday. Johnson is charged with child molestation and statutory rape of a child younger than 14.
    
Pace says the incidents occurred between 1984 and 1990. He said Johnson was acquainted with the victim's family.
    
Pace says the investigation began several days ago when the molestation was reported. No statute of limitations exists in Mississippi law for sex crimes.
    
Pace would not release the age or sex of the victim.
    
Johnson is being held in the Warren County Jail in lieu of $50,000 bail.
