An Opp man is back in jail on a bond of more than $2 million after being indicted by a grand jury on charges ranging from rape and sodomy to sexual abuse of a child.
Jerry Wayne Scofield, 59, of Opp, was taken into custody by Covington County Sheriff’s Department Deputy Paige Spivey Monday. Scofield was originally jailed in December, after an unrelated case revealed he allegedly sexually abused a female relative for years. Scofield’s December arrest came after a months-long investigation, CCSO officials said at the time.
