Springfield Man Behind Bars For Child Sex Charges

SPRINGFIELD - A Springfield man is in the Bay County jail on child sex charges.

31 year old Larry Jacob Stanfill is charged with two counts of sexual battery on a child under the age of 12 and violation of probation.

Springfield Police investigators say Stanfill molested a 7 year old girl at her baby-sitter's house. The child's father took her to the hospital Thursday night for treatment.

Authorities with the Gulf Coast Children's Advocacy Center also examined and interviewed the girl before police issued a warrant for Stanfill's arrest.

Friday afternoon a judge ordered Stanfill to be held in the Bay County jail, without bond.
