A Coldwater man was taken into custody last week in connection with sexual battery of a minor, according to officials from the Tate County Sheriff’s Office.
The man, identified by Investigator Lisa Sanders as Paul Webster Hunt, 61, of the 2800 block of Old Memphis-Oxford Road, surrendered to authorities Monday, Sept. 28. He was placed under arrest and booked at the Tate County Jail.
Sanders said she opened an investigation near the end of September after allegations were made against Hunt regarding inappropriate conduct with a juvenile. Sanders said enough evidence was uncovered during the investigation to charge Hunt in connection with the case.
Hunt’s bond was set at $100,000 during his initial appearance in Tate County Justice Court on Tuesday, Sept. 29.
The incident remains under investigation by the Tate County Sheriff’s Office, according to Sanders.
