Teen Arrested for Sexual Abuse and Sodomy of Child Under 6 Years Old

A disturbing arrest was made by Mobile County Sheriff’s Deputies on Tuesday for the alleged sodomy of a young child.

Jeremy Moore, 18, is accused of sexually abusing and sodomizing a child under the age of six years old.  He was transported to Mobile Metro Jail on Tuesday morning following his arrest, offering little in his defense to News 5 cameras.

“I don’t know,” Moore said twice when asked if he was guilty.

Investigators say the incident ocurred over the weekend when the victim’s parents alerted authorities.  Enough evidence was collected to charge Moore with first-degree sodomy and sexual abuse of a child under the age of 12 (the victim was under the age of 6).

Moore is from California but was visiting the Mobile area, deputies said.  He could face a sentence of life in prison without parole.
