The victim told deputies that the abuse began when she was 12 years old and continued until she was 14.{} The young girl claimed she was afraid to tell anyone because the offender made threats against her and her mother if she did not keep it their secret.{}

The case was investigated and in January 2013, detectives presented the case to the grand jury.{} 30-year-old McCloy is out on a $90,000 bond.
