A Jones County man is facing molestation charges after being accused of having inappropriate relations with a family member.

Lindin Ellzey, 37 of Soso, was charged with three counts of molestation and taken into custody Monday without incident, according to the Jones County Sheriff’s Department.

During a forensic interview with the victim, it was revealed that Ellzey had inappropriate relations with the victim on several occasions, according to the JCSD.
