Clinton Police Chief Michael Warren said a Central Hinds Academy and Raymond Road Baptist Church employee was arrested Tuesday on one count of gratification of lust while in a position of trust or authority.
In a release on Wednesday, Warren said Adam Epperson, 34, of Clinton, was arrested on the charges and bonded out on $25,000 bond the same day.
According to officials, the arrest was subsequent to a complaint received from an underage victim associated with Epperson through the Raymond Road Baptist Church.
The incident is alleged to have occurred at the suspectís home in Clinton. Epperson surrendered to the Clinton police on Tuesday where he was booked and bonded out.
Epperson's first court date is March 12.
