RUSSELLVILLE, Ala. (AP) - A 71-year-old man who volunteered with a kindergarten program in north Alabama is charged with inappropriately touching and exposing himself to children.

Authorities say James Lamar Horton of Red Bay faces multiple counts of sex-related crimes following an indictment by grand jurors in Franklin County.

Horton is free on $200,000 bond, and court records show he doesn’t yet have an attorney to speak on his behalf.

The TimesDaily of Florence reports Horton was a volunteer with the Foster Grandparent Program of Northwest Alabama. He was assigned to the school’s kindergarten program.

Authorities say the allegations were reported after one of the students told parents.



Capt. Jonathan Winters of the State Bureau of Investigation says agents began investigating in January after being contacted by Red Bay police.
