Louis L. Jefferson, 52, is charged with nearly 20 felony counts, including 9 counts of endangering the welfare of a child by sexual conduct, four counts of child molestation and four additional counts of statutory sodomy.

Jefferson appeared with public defender counsel who requested bond to be reduced from $75,000 cash with no surety allowed to $5,000. That request was denied by Judge Kevin Walden.

The court also denied a request from Jefferson’ counsel for release on medical furlough to the medical provider of his choice. He remains in the custody of the Ray County Jail.

Jefferson will appear again for a hearing on Thursday, October 12 at 9:00 a.m. in a Carroll County courtroom, Judge David Miller presiding.
