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.
