On May 15, investigators began investigating a complaint of Statutory Sodomy. During a forensic interview, the female victim under the age of 12-years-old, told detectives on May 10, 55-year-old John Kennon, of Lincoln County, pick her up from her home and drove her to his home located along the 400 block of Glen Court, in Lincoln County.

Once inside the home, Kennon attempted to rape the victim and other inappropriate sexual contact.

Kennon refused to speak with the investigators about the incident.

Prosecutors charged Kennon with Attempted Statutory Rape, three counts of Statutory Sodomy, Attempted Statutory Sodomy and Child Molestation. Kennon is currently housed in the Lincoln County Jail. Honorable Judge Gregory Allsberry set a no bond.
