VICKSBURG, Miss.  (KNOE 8 News) - A Mississippi man will serve five years in prison for molesting a girl nearly three decades ago.  64-year-old William Bush pleaded guilty to the charges back in January.

Prosecutors say the crime happened in 1986 when the victim was 9 years old.  Now 36, she testified against bush.

The abuse wasn't reported until 2012, when the victim moved back to the area and confronted Bush.

This isn't the man's first run in with the law.  In 1995, Bush was also convicted of sexual battery on victim younger than 14 and given 5 years probation.
