JC man accused of molesting 7-year-old appears in court
JEFFERSON CITY - A Jefferson City man accused of molesting a 7-year-old child was due in court Wednesday. Earlier this month KOMU 8 News reported police arrested Javaughn M. Hodges on a first degree child molestation charge July 9.
Hodges, 33, is accused of engaging in sexual contact with a 7-year-old girl according to a Jefferson City police officer. The girl said the man had sex with her multiple times ever since Hodges moved into his apartment in August 2013. She also said the last time Hodges performed sexual acts on her was after school in May 2014.
An STD test was conducted on the girl following the incidents and it was determined that she had tested positive for chlamydia.
