A Morehouse Parish man was arrested over the weekend on incest charges.
Morehouse Parish Sheriff Mike Tubbs confirmed the arrest of Jerry R. Lynn Jr., 15159 Lum Day Rd. for three counts of aggravated incest and one count of contributing to the delinquency of a juvenile.
Sgt. Rebecca Wallace was contacted by the Arkansas State Police last week regarding an inappropriate relationship Lynn was involved in with an underage relative. Wallace's investigation revealed the relationship had taken place in Morehouse Parish during the summer.
Lynn was taken into custody and placed in the Morehouse Parish Jail on the charges and remains there with a $100,000 bond. If convicted, Lynn faces up to a $50,000 fine and up to 25 years in prison on each count of incest. The investigation is ongoing with possible federal charges to be added.
