Thirteen years after a disturbing rape, the alleged culprit has finally been placed behind bars.

Those with the Hendersonville Police Department traveled to Cincinnati, Ohio on Tuesday to arrest Swinburne Ainsworth Jason Augustine for an assault that happened in 2003.

The 53-year-old has been facing charges of rape, incest, and sexual battery by an authority figure.

On Wednesday, Augustine waived extradition. He was booked into the Sumner County Sheriff’s Office where he was being held on a $100,000 bond.

Augustine has been expected to appear in court Friday.
