An Andalusia man has been arrested for sexual abuse of a child under 12 years of age. James Allen Lee, 52, was taken into custody Thursday.
APD Investigator Gene Jackson said Lee’s arrest came after a three-week investigation by the APD and the Covington County Department of Human Resources. Investigator Jackson said a case of possible child molestation was reported to the APD, and since a child was involved, DHR was contacted.
Lee was charged with three counts of sexual abuse of a child under 12 years of age. He is being held in the Covington County Jail under $300,000.
