Allegations of sexual abuse more than 20 years ago have led to charges against a 78-year-old Funkstown man, according to Washington County Sheriff's deputies.
Richard Lionel Bailey, of 10 W. Chestnut St., was served with criminal summons for one count each of second- and third-degree sex offenses. He wasn't taken into custody.
Investigator Chris Weaver interviewed the victim in late August after the man, now in his 30s, made it known he wanted to make a formal complaint against Bailey for incidents that allegedly occurred in the summer of 1977.
