Hendersonville police this week charged a 45-year-old man with the rape of an eight-year-old girl more than 20 years ago.
According to a news release, Charles Settle lured the girl into an area that was concealed by brush where he raped her on August 25, 1987. Settle was 19 years old at the time of the crime.
The Sumner County Grand Jury was presented with the investigation this month and returned an indictment for Settle, charging him aggravated rape.
Settle, who was incarcerated in the Wilson County jail on an unrelated crime, was transported to Sumner County jail Monday where he remains on a $250,000 bond.
His next court date is set for November 7.
