CULLMAN COUNTY, Ala. (WBRC) - Cullman County Sheriff’s Office (CCSO) Investigators arrested a man last weekend on child sex abuse charges.

Investigators say 63-year-old Jesus Cortes Sandoval was arrested on two counts of sexual abuse of a child under the age of 12.

Other charges maybe pending as the investigation continues.

Due to the graphic nature of the crime and the crime involving a child, there is limited information that the CCSO can release.

Sandoval is being held in the Cullman County Detention Center with a U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) detainer without bond.
