Townsend Arrested

An accused sex offender from Dothan is behind bars.

A warrant was issued earlier this month charging 29-year-old Clifton Townsend with first degree sodomy.

He’s accused of sexually assaulting the 13-year old daughter of an acquaintance.

Police say Townsend was picked up by a patrol officer.

Townsend is being held in the Houston County Jail.

His bond has been set at 50-thousand dollars.
