In early September, a concerned parent came to the Jones County Sheriff’s Office to report concerns about her young teenage daughter being touched inappropriately. The parent reported her daughter told her Edward O’Neil Sellers, 22 of Laurel, had acted inappropriately.
A forensic interview was set up for the juvenile regarding the incident. The victim revealed to the interviewer that Sellers had come in to her room, kissed her and touched her inappropriately.
Sellers was taken into custody and charged with Molestation. His initial appearance is scheduled for Wednesday, October 10, 2018 at 1:00pm at Jones County Justice Court.
