An Owensboro man is facing sex charges after a victim came forward after nearly four decades. According to Kentucky State Police, their investigation began in March when the female victim reported that 66-year-old Michael Bland had inappropriate sexual relations with her in the late 1970’s when she was under 12 years old. The victim told officers that she came forward now because she was afraid Bland was abusing more victims. Troopers say they did uncover another victim, thanks to the first victim coming forward. Bland was arrested Thursday and charged with rape, sodomy and five counts of sexual abuse. He was taken to the Daviess County Detention Center.
