Man Arrested for Child Sex Crimes

A Cottondale man is in the Calhoun County jail in Blountstown, charged with child sex crimes.

Calhoun county sheriff's investigators arrested 24 year old David Caleb Riley charging him with 1-count of lewd & lascivious molestation on a child under the age of 16.

Deputies say Riley molested a 15-year old girl in September while she was visiting a relative's home in Blountstown. Apparently Riley was the boyfriend of a family member.

Authorities say they received an arrest warrant after crime lab tests found Riley's D-N-A on the girl's clothing.

He's being held in the Calhoun County jail pending a “danger to the community hearing” scheduled for Thursday.
