Wanted Sex Offender Apprehended

A man wanted for child molestation in Statesboro is now behind bars. Police arrested LeSamuel Palmer after a traffic stop over the weekend in Brevard County, Florida. Last month, Palmer appeared in a Bulloch County court because he hadn't registered as a sex offender. Hours after leaving court, police say he assaulted another child.

Paperwork is being filed to extradite Palmer back to Bulloch County.
