Court records say that 52-year-old Louis Jefferson is accused of multiple child sex-related crimes, including molestation.

Jefferson’s victim came forward in early 2017 to report the relationship he had carried out with her for more than a decade, beginning when the victim was a pre-teen.

He stands accused of nine counts of endangering the welfare of a child, four counts of first degree molestation and other child sex-related crimes.

Jefferson had his case transferred to Missouri’s 7th Circuit in Clay County and a new judge assigned by the Missouri Supreme Court last week.

He remains jailed on $75,000 cash only bond at the Raty County Jail

He will appear before Judge Larry Harman for a hearing at 1:00 p.m. Tuesday.
