Purvis man faces sexual molestation charges

PURVIS, MS (WDAM) - A Purvis man made his initial court appearance Monday on charges of sexual molestation.

Jonathan Marcus Lee, 20 appeared before Municipal Court Judge George Schmidt late this afternoon after spending the weekend in the Lamar County jail.  Lee was arrested last week at his home on Durham Street in Purvis by agents from the Mississippi Bureau of Investigations, the Attorney General's office, and Purvis police.  Lee is charged with two separate counts of sexual molestation involving two minor females. Agents were seen removing computers from Lee's home.  It's not known if investigators found illegal images on those computers.  Judge Schmidt set Lee's bond Monday at $250,000 on each count.
