Mississippi man charged with sexually abusing a vulnerable person

A Waynesboro, Mississippi, man faces 15 years in prison for sexual battery of a vulnerable person, announced Attorney General Jim Hood.

Theodoric Davis, 47, turned himself in to authorities Monday after a Wayne County grand jury indicted him on one count of sexual battery. The indictment alleges Davis touched a vulnerable person without the victim’s consent for the purpose of gratifying his lust, while employed as a contract transporter.

Davis was booked into the Wayne County jail. If convicted, he faces up to 15 years in prison. A charge is merely an accusation, and a defendant is presumed innocent unless and until proven guilty beyond a reasonable doubt in a court of law.
