HOUSTON (CBSDFW.COM/AP) — Investigators say a retired Harris County sheriff’s deputy was arrested for sexually assaulting a young girl over several years.

John Van Trump was arrested Friday and charged with super aggravated sexual assault, because the victim was under 6.

Investigators say the 68-year-old Trump assaulted his ex-girlfriend’s daughter.

The girl, now 8, told family members earlier this year what had happened to her. Sheriff’s detectives then launched an investigation that ended with the arrest.

Trump was a 30 year veteran with the Harris County Sheriff’s Office. The Houston Chronicle reports he retired as a sergeant in 2009 after his final assignment at the county courthouse.

He was being held without bail Saturday at the Harris County jail. Online jail records did not indicate an attorney for Trump.
