A Newton County man has now been arraigned on multiple charges related to child pornography.
Newton County Sheriff Billy Rowles said Thursday that his deputies assisted the Texas Attorney General’s Office in serving search and arrest warrants at the home of 24-year-old Gerald Xavier Rhodes on County Road 2041 in the Liberty Community, located between Newton and Burkeville.
Rowles said the investigation was conducted by the AG’s office, and it resulted in Rhodes being charged on Friday morning with six counts of possession of child pornography. Newton County Precinct 3 Justice of the Peace Michael Greer set Rhodes’ bond at a combined total of $180,000.00.
At last word he remained in the Newton County Jail.
