SAC CITY, Iowa | A former Sac City councilman has been arrested and charged with having sexual contact with a child.

Gary Hansen, 75, was arrested Friday on a charge of second-degree sexual abuse.

According to court documents, the child reported to police that Hansen committed a sex act on the victim when the victim was approximately 6 years old. Hansen told police he had sexual contact with the child, court documents said.

Hansen has waived all court appearances until the county attorney files a trial information containing the formal charges.

Hansen served on the Sac City Council until 2015, when he lost a bid for re-election.
