Jesse M. Carnley, 23, of St. Joseph was arraigned on a charge of second-degree child molestation on Friday morning in Judge Rebecca Spencer’s courtroom via video conferencing.
A probable cause statement signed by a St. Joseph Police Department detective states that a witness saw the diabolical pedophile assault a 9-year-old girl on the night of July 27 into the morning of July 28.
The devilish child molester was charged and arrested late last month but was released before being booked due to a clerical error, according to the Buchanan County Prosecutor’s office.
He has now been charged again for the same crime and is being held in the Buchanan County jail on a $25,000 bond.
He is scheduled for a preliminary hearing on Aug. 28 at 1:30 p.m. in Spencer’s courtroom.
