Man arrested on charge he molested girl

VANCLEAVE, Miss. —

A 30-year-old man has been arrested after a Vancleave resident told police her 16-year-old daughter came home and told her the man had allegedly touched her inappropriately.
 
The Mississippi Press reports Richard Leon Fairley was arrested by Jackson County investigators Tuesday and charged with molestation/touching of a child for lustful purposes.
 
Investigators say Fairley is a friend of the 16-year-old's family and that Fairley allegedly exposed himself to the teenager.
 
Fairley made an initial appearance in Jackson County Court, where Judge T. Larry Wilson set bail at $25,000.
 
If convicted, Fairley faces up to 15 years in prison and a $5,000 fine.
 
It was unclear whether Fairley has an attorney.
