Child's mother calls police, man arrested for sexual indecency

PARAGOULD, AR (KAIT) - A Paragould man is arrested for sexual indecency with a child after having consensual sex with a juvenile.

Billy Jacques, 25, was arrested July 11 when he tried to visit the child at their home. Her mother called police when he arrived.

Since the investigation is still ongoing, the juvenile's age cannot be released, but Detective Mike Tinnin of the Paragould Criminal Investigation Department says Jacques charge is typically associated with children below the age of 15.

Jacques appeared in court district last week and was bound over to circuit court and will appear again Aug. 27. He is being held in lieu of $50,000 bond.
