Jones County Man Arrested on Child Molestation Charges

A Jones County man is behind bars on a $200,000 cash bond for allegedly touching a 10-year-old for lustful purposes.

42-year-old William Roney was arrested on Thursday after authorities said he inappropriately touched the child of a family friend.

On Friday, Roney appeared in Justice Court where investigators testified he made several threatening phone calls to the victim's family and also drove by their homes numerous times before being arrested.

Roney is charged with possession of precursors and child molestation.
