An Obion County man was arrested Friday on a charge stemming from alleged inappropriate contact with a young girl in 2005.
Ronald Douglas “Doug” Brewer, 42, of Obion was charged with a single count of aggravated sexual battery, according to Obion County Sheriff’s Department investigator Angie Taylor.
The warrant for Brewer’s arrest alleges that on or about Oct. 22-23, 2005, he fondled and touched a child under the age of 13 on her private parts. The warrant specifically states the girl was 9 years old at the time of the alleged incident, which occurred at Brewer’s residence at 5519 Minnick-Elbridge Road in the Obion area.
He reportedly confessed his actions to law enforcement on March 30, according to the warrant.
Brewer has been arraigned and released on bond, according to Ms. Taylor. His preliminary hearing is scheduled for Thursday in Obion County General Sessions Court.
