A former Warren County sheriff appeared in superior court Wednesday morning to face six sexual assault charges.
Edward Bullock sat in a wheelchair and had to use a listening device to follow the proceedings.
Bullock turned 85 this week and underwent knee and hip replacement surgery in the last two months.
According to a grand jury indictment, Edward Bullock sexually abused a 10-year-old boy for several years in the sheriff's office in the mid 1980s.
Bullock was not required to enter a plea during the hearing and Judge Ann Bartlett set bail at $100,000.
