Kenneth Charles Smith

A 56-year-old Sulphur Springs man was taken into custody at 2:30 p.m. Wednesday by police on an indecency with a child by sexual contact warrant, according to arrest reports.

A 15-year-old who does not reside in Sulphur Springs reportedly made an outcry and Sulphur Springs police were contacted. The teen alleged she was sexually molested at a Sulphur Springs address when she was 11 years old, according to Sulphur Springs Police Detective Brian Shurtleff.

As part of the police investigation, the teen was interviewed at a child advocacy center by a forensic interviewer specially trained to speak with juveniles reading allegations of abuse or crimes, the detective reported.

Based on the police investigation, a warrant was attained for Kenneth Charles Smith’s arrest on an indecency with a child by sexual contact charge. The warrant was executed at the man’s residence and Smith was taken into custody at 2:30 p.m. Sept. 4 on the charge, according to Shurtleff.

Smith remained in Hopkins County jail Thursday morning; his bond was set at $100,000 on the indecency with a child by sexual contact charge, according to jail reports.
