JONESBORO, Ark. – A 47-year-old Jonesboro man is being charged with fourth degree sexual assault on accusations of inappropriate touching with a teen.
A press release said Jonesboro Police Department Internet Crimes Against Children Detectives were recently notified that Michael Montgomery, 47 of Jonesboro, became physically inappropriate with a 14 year old juvenile victim.
Police say the victim stated that Montgomery had repeatedly touched her inappropriately, both under and over her clothing, as well as gave her massages and would “raspberry” her chest and stomach areas.
