JACKSON, MS – Jan. 27, 2019 – A 20-year-old man was arrested Wednesday on one count of child exploitation, announced Attorney General Jim Hood.
Mikel Brown was arrested in Ocean Springs after an investigation of his suspicious online activity. He was booked into the Jackson County Sheriff’s Office on a $100,000 bond.
If convicted, Brown faces up to 40 years in prison. A charge is merely an accusation, and a defendant is presumed innocent unless and until proven guilty beyond a reasonable doubt in a court of law.
