Richard Allen Pate, 62, of 117 Hines Drive, was charged with statutory sex offense and taking indecent liberties with a minor. He was being held Tuesday in the Wayne County Jail under a $500,000 secured bond.
A police report was filed last month, alleging that Pate sexually assaulted a juvenile in August 1992. Pate was a teacher at Eastern Wayne Middle School at the time, but the alleged victim wasn't a student at the school, police said.
No other details of the case were released.
