CHARENTON, LA (WAFB) - A man accused of molesting a young girl is free on bond.

The St. Mary Parish Sheriff's Office said Kegan Clements, 24, of Charenton, was arrested Monday on a warrant for molestation of a juvenile.

He is suspected of molesting a 5-year-old girl.

Deputies said the warrant was the result of an investigation that began after they were contacted on October 14.

Detectives said Clements turned himself to the St. Mary Parish Law Enforcement Center in Centerville after finding out about the warrant.

He was booked into the parish prison on the molestation charge.

Officials added he later posted $50,000 bond and was released.
