An Elizabethtown man is being held on a $5,000 cash bond in the Hardin County Detention Center following his arrest Wednesday on multiple sex offenses, reportedly against a female family member.
Mickey Hatfield, 65, was arrested at 4:25 p.m. Wednesday by Elizabethtown police.
He is charged with incest, first-degree sexual abuse, third-degree rape, second-degree sodomy and third-degree sodomy - all felonies. Incest is the highest level of the charges. It's a Class B felony punishable by 10 to 20 years in prison, if convicted.
The reported abuse began in 2003 against a minor when the reported sexual abuse occurred, according to an arrest citation.
