Man faces 45 sex charges

Staff Writer


A Grenada County man is facing felony charges of child pornography and three sexual battery charges.
Josh Dale, investigator with the Grenada County Sheriff’s Department, identified the man as Danny Jones, 68, who was arrested Monday afternoon.
Jones is being held at the Grenada County Jail.
“All of these charges stem from an investigation that began last year,” Dale said.
District Attorney Doug Evans said Jones was arrested last year and charged with touching a child for lustful purposes, and that was the start of his investigation.
“We can’t go into many details surrounding this investigation,” Evans said. “Following his arrest, the sheriff’s department recovered digital items inside his home and had them tested at the state’s attorney general’s office.” Both Dale and Evans said the testing of the digital devices led to Jones’ arrest Monday.
