COLUMBUS - In the summer of 2015, the Cherokee County Sheriff’s Office conducted an investigation into allegations of sexual conduct between Jonathan Blalock, who was 22 years of age at the time, and a 14 year-old girl.

As a result of the investigation, a warrant was issued for Blalock’s arrest. Authorities recently located Blalock in Arizona, where he was taken into custody.

Earlier this week, he was extradited back to the Cherokee County Jail on allegations of Aggravated Indecent Liberties with a Child.
