A man has been arrested in Jackson County on sex crimes charges, court records show.

Joshua David Young, 23, of Theodore, Alabama, was indicted on felony charges of sexual battery and child exploitation.

According to court papers, Young allegedly had sex with a 14-year-old girl around Sept. 24, 2017, in Pascagoula and filmed the same girl simulating a sex act the same day.

Young is set for arraignment on the felony charges Wednesday before Judge Kathy King Jackson.

If convicted of the felony charges, Young could go to prison for up to 70 years.
