27 year-old Jason Edward Fretwell is being charged with indecent liberties, sodomy and soliciting a 15 year-old girl for sex through the internet. The Augusta County Sheriff's Office said these charges stem from a relationship that developed between Fretwell and the girl in early July.

He served and protected Nelson County for the past five months until investigators arrested him for an incident that allegedly happened in July involving a family member.

This Augusta County resident did resign from the Nelson County Sheriff's Office last week and he has been released on bond.

Sheriff Brantley of Nelson County Sheriff said he's shocked by the news of this incident. The sheriff's office also said they do thorough background checks and criminal history evaluations but had no idea about the incident.
