Monroe Man Charged With Taking Indecent Liberties With a Minor

Michael McCormick

Amherst Co., VA - The Amherst County Sheriff's Office has arrested a man for taking indecent liberties with a child under the age of 13.

Thirty-nine-year-old Michael McCormick of Monroe was arrested Thursday.

This investigation actually started back in 2011 and McCormick was arrested in July of that year for fondling a minor, only to have the charge dismissed.

But the Commonwealth's Attorney re-opened the case.

Indictments were handed down Thursday on several charges, including aggravated sexual battery.

McCormick is being held without bond in the Blue Ridge Regional Jail.
