GULFPORT, Miss. (AP) - A 51-year-old Pass Christian man has been indicted by a Harrison County grand jury on nine counts of sex charges.

The Sun Herald reports (https://bit.ly/2g2W4uR) Kenneth West was arrested Thursday on charges of touching a child for lustful purposes and sexual battery.

Sheriff’s deputies had said West is accused of having sexual contact with two children in 2014.

West was arrested in May on a charge of molestation of a child, rape and two sexual assault charges.

Sheriff Troy Peterson said family members of one child on May 5 contacted sheriff’s investigators as well as police authorities from another state.

Peterson says during their investigation they learned West had sexual contact with another child.

Online jail records do not list an attorney for West.
