Todd King, a former law enforcement official, was arrested and booked into Rankin County Jail at 12:54 a.m. Friday, WLBT reports.

King served with the Mississippi Department of Mental Health and the Mississippi Department of Corrections in a high-ranking capacity, as well as previously serving at the Jackson and Brandon police departments.

Todd King is being held on several charges, among which are statutory rape, gratification of lust and child neglect.

Details of these crimes are scarce at the time of this writing.

King was also previously arrested in 2018 and charged with domestic violence, which resulted in his termination from MDOC. In 2019, his home in Pearl was searched when other allegations spawned approval of a search warrant.
