(Newser) – A man who was molested 40 years ago not only tracked his alleged attacker down and got him to confess … he got him to confess on YouTube. Ron Tebo, 47, claims he and a younger sister were sexually assaulted in 1970 by a teenage neighbor. He decided to track down the neighbor in 2007. When he found the neighbor, whom he had known as “Butch,” Tebo interrogated him on video and then posted it online.

"Well, I'm sorry, I don't know what you want me to do. I'm sorry, I truly am. I moved on with my life and I hope you made something of yours and I'm sorry,” says “Butch” in the video. He later admits to molesting “one of” Tebo’s sisters and says he remembers the car the attacks allegedly happened in. Since the statute of limitations has passed, the case cannot be prosecuted, AOL News reports. For more on the story or to watch the video, click here.
