A 71-year-old man charged in 100 counts of rape

A 71-year-old man was arrested on 50 counts of first-degree rape on April 9. Three days later, he was charged with 50 more counts.

The crimes began in the early 1970s and continued for a decade, and involved children under 13.

Harvey J. Fountain of Louisiana has now been charged in those assaults.

The decades-old accusations came to light April 1, when one of the victims disclosed the abuse to local authorities. The individual also informed police that there were other possible victims.
