    A 61-year-old Burkburnett man is behind bars, charged with the continuous sexual abuse of a child under age 14.
    A now seven-year-old girl told authorities that James Calvin Petty has been sexually assaulting her for more than a year.
    The girl told authorities the first time an assault occurred was when she was six-years-old, and Petty showed her a pornographic video, then began assaulting her.
    When interviewed by police, Petty first denied the accusations.
    Then he changed his story and said the young girl repeatedly asked him to touch her.
    Petty is being held in the Wichita County Jail on a $150-thousand bond.
