The Herald-Times reports the 52-year-old Messel faces attempted rape, criminal deviate conduct and other charges for allegedly attacking the 22-year-old woman in September 2012 after offering her a ride home from a lake in Bloomington.
Authorities say a DNA analysis linked Messel to samples taken from beneath the woman’s fingernails.
