Police say a Biloxi man is accused of having sex with someone 40 years his junior.

Police Lt. Christopher De Back said in a press release that Jonathan Alan Gill, 54, was arrested Thursday on three felony counts of sexual battery and one count of touching a child for lustful purposes. De Back said police launched an investigation into Gill at the request of the teen’s mother, who said the two had been having sex for about a year.

He said Gill met the teen through a church and had engaged in sexual activity a “number of times” at a home in Biloxi.

Gill turned himself in after a warrant was issued for his arrest. He was booked into the Harrison County jail, where his bond was set at $400,000 by Judge Albert Fountain.
