A second bond hearing was held today for a Hattiesburg man already facing charges of sexual battery on a minor under the age of 14.

Friday afternoon, Wesley Topp was arrested touching a child for lustful purposes. The incident allegedly occurred at a private residence where Topp was babysitting. Judge Schmidt set Topp's bond on Monday at $50,000.

Topp was also charged on December 2, for allegedly sexually assaulting a minor while working in a local church nursery. He was out on 100,000 dollars bond when he was arrested on the second charge.

Topp is a former employee at Parkway Heights United Methodist Church which is located at 2420 Hardy Street. He is also employed at Oak Grove High School as an assistant teacher with a community based special needs class. Superintendent Bun Burnett says Topp has been placed on administrative leave.
