Arraignment for Ina Man Charged with Predatory Sex Offenses Set for Next Week

MT. VERNON – Bail has been set at $100,000 for a 66-year-old Ina man charged with predatory sex offenses.

Jerry D. McKay was arrested Thursday at his home in rural Ina when Jefferson County Sheriff’s deputies served a warrant charging him with two Class X felonies for predatory criminal sexual assault.

The arrest warrant was the result of a sheriff’s office investigation initiated on Sept. 23, 2020 involving the complaint of a teenage juvenile victim. 

According to the sheriff’s department, the investigation involved many man hours plus a search warrant served at the McKay residence. 

The case was presented to the Jefferson County State’s Attorney’s Office for review for charges and a warrant was issued.

McKay remains in the Jefferson County Jail and is next scheduled to appear in court June 2 for arraignment.
