Reports said that the incidents started when the child was 8 years-old.

Authorities added that the offenses occurred at a location on Rebecca Street.

Chatman is charged with three counts aggravated sodomy, four counts aggravated child molestation, four counts cruelty to children, four counts terroristic threats and acts, incest, and aggravated sodomy against a person younger than 10 years of age.
