Indecent liberties suspect turns himself in



Staff Writer


A Lincoln County man turned himself into authorities Monday for allegedly inappropriately touching a teen girl this past summer, the Sheriff’s Office said.

Peter Edmayrd Jay III, 22, of 170 Car Farm Road, north of Lincolnton, has been charged with one felony count of taking indecent liberties with a child, according to a press release.

The incident involved a 14-year-old girl, whose family is acquainted with Jay, and took place at the suspect’s home sometime between July 1 and Aug. 25, deputies said.

 Jay has since been released from the Harven A. Crouse Detention Center on a $10,000 unsecured bond.
