PRENTISS COUNTY, Miss. (WTVA) - A Booneville man faces child sex crimes in Prentiss County.

On Saturday, November 3, Prentiss County deputies followed up on a report that allegedly involved the suspect, Jordan Britt Bridges, 27, possessing images of child pornography on his cell phone, as well as having sexual contact with a minor female child or children.

Deputies, along with the Mississippi Highway Patrol, arrested Bridges without incident at his home on Saturday.

He is charged with two counts of possession of child porn, two counts of touching a child for lustful purposes, one count of sexual battery, one count of photographing for lewd purposes or invading the privacy by photographing.
