A Jones County man made his initial appearance in court Wednesday after being accused of molesting a child.

Cody Pitts was charged with one count of child molestation. A judge set his bond at $50,000.

Pitts remains in the Jones County Jail.

The victim participated in a forensic interview, but the interview was inconclusive.

In January 2017, the grandparent once again contacted Jones County Sheriff’s Investigators, reporting the child had again spoken of inappropriate actions involving Pitts. Another forensic interview was conducted.  The victim was able to reveal details about the allegations.
