That’s when law enforcement arrived.
Lighthorse Officer Casey Gentry brought Benjamin to the Ada Police Department. Wilson asked him what he was doing at the location and Murray insisted he was doing nothing wrong.
Wilson told Murray he was under arrest for lewd acts against a child under 16. Officer Casey Gentry transported Murray to the Pontotoc County Justice Center.
He is not eligible for bond and remains incarcerated.
Officers said the man has denied any wrongdoing.
His record, the sheriff’s department reports, shows he spent a year in county jail for violations of sex offenders prohibitions by being in a public park in 2011. He was released from jail in March 2011.
