IUKA, Miss. (WTVA) - A man is free on $30,000 bond after his arrest on an indictment that accuses him of sex crimes against a child.

Roy Steven Roberts, originally of Golden, was arrested in Texas last year and brought back to Mississippi to face fondling and sexual battery charges.

Sheriff's investigators started looking at the case last May.  The grand jury handed up the indictment in September.
