Rex man arrested on sex charges

Clayton County police arrested a Rex man, Thursday, after neighborhood children complained he had allegedly exposed himself to them.

Steven Corvell Jones, 37, is being held in the Clayton County Jail on two felony counts of child molestation, and three misdemeanor counts of public indecency. He has a $6,000 bond on the lesser charges and a $10,000 bond on the felonies.

As a condition of his bond, Jones was ordered to stay away from the children.

If Jones does not make bond, he will be entitled to a preliminary hearing set for Sept. 29.

Warrants issued through Clayton Magistrate Court allege that Jones exposed his genitals to several children Thursday afternoon. The children told police Jones masturbated in front of them.

Jones made a first appearance in Magistrate Court Friday morning. He is being represented by a public defender.
