FRANKLINTON MAN ARRESTED FOR MULTIPLE CHARGES OF

SEXUAL BEHAVIOR WITH JUVENILES

 

Acting on information provided by concerned parents, the detective division of the Washington Parish Sheriff’s Office began an investigation into allegations that a Franklinton man had been engaged in sexual behavior with juveniles. 

The initial investigation resulted in the arrest of Jonathan D. Young, 34, a resident of 18271 McKay Lane in Franklinton.  Young was arrested and booked into the Washington Parish Jail on February 7, charged with two counts of indecent behavior with juveniles.  He was released on February 8 after posting a $35,000 bond. 

On February 9, Young was arrested again after more juveniles came forth with allegations.  He was returned to the Washington Parish Jail charged with ten counts of molestation of juveniles.  He remains in jail with bond on the new charges set at $225,000. 

On February 12, an additional juvenile came forward with allegations of sexual misconduct.  Young was arrested again this afternoon for sexual battery and indecent behavior with a juvenile.  Bond will be set this week on the new charges. 

The investigation into allegations against Young continues and it is suspected that other incidents may have occurred in Tangipahoa Parish and Concordia Parish, as well as Franklin County, Mississippi.   Any person who may have knowledge of other crimes committed by Young is asked to contact Detective Demmie Rice at (985) 839-3434, extension 2004. 

Sheriff Randy Seal commented.  “This is so tragic for each of these young victims as well as their families.    If your child has had contact with Young, please question them carefully about the relationship.  If you have any suspicion of inappropriate behavior with your child, please contact Detective Rice.”
