Jones Co. man indicted on child molestation

Jerry Bustin, 62 Jerry Bustin, 62
JONES COUNTY, MS (WDAM) -

This is a news release from the Jones County Sheriff's Department. 

In early April 2015, a mother of a little boy received a call from the child’s school that there was a problem.  The child had knowledge, well beyond his age, of sexual matters.  There was a suspicion of molestation and the suspect was Jerry Bustin, 62 of Laurel. 

The child went through a forensic interview and it was then determined that a molestation had occurred; however, Bustin was released pending further investigation and Grand Jury action on the advice of the District Attorney’s office. 

The Grand Jury delivered a “True Bill,” and Bustin will be arraigned on Sept.17 before Judge Dal Williamson.
