Det. Jeff Maynard confirmed to The Brazil Times that a parent of a juvenile under the age of 10-years-old contacted the Clay County Justice Center Friday evening about alleged incidents of sexual misconduct.
During the initial investigation, officers questioned and later took into custody Rick K. Cooksey, 47, Carbon.
Around 1 a.m., Saturday, Cooksey was booked into jail on preliminary charges of child molesting on a $50,000 cash bond. Jail officials confirmed Sunday night that Cooksey remains incarcerated at the facility awaiting formal arraignment.
Although details are limited due to the ongoing investigation, Maynard said there is the potential for more charges outside Clay County.
The Brazil Times will update this story as more details become available.
