A 67-year-old Madison man was arrested three days before Christmas and charged with molesting and sodomizing an 11-year-old female.
According to Chief Deputy Keith Howard, Morgan County Sheriff’s Department, Alfonzo Foster, Fifth Street, Madison, was arrested without incident on Dec. 22 and charged with one count aggravated child molestation, one count, aggravated sodomy and one count enticing a child for indecent purposes.
He remains incarcerated in the Morgan County Detention Center.
Howard said the arrest came nine days after relatives of the victim presented allegations to investigators at the Morgan County Sheriff’s Office regarding the alleged abuse.
“Parents of the victim notified law enforcement. We scheduled a forensic interview with the child and a medical examination,” Howard said. “Based on the information gathered from the interview and the examination, charges were immediately filed,” he said.
