BREAKING: Man, 34, accused of having sexual relationship with boy, 15

A 34-year-old Huntsville man remained jailed Tuesday afternoon after being accused of having sexual contact with a 15-year-old boy, records show.

On Monday, Athens Police Sgt. Johnny Campbell arrested Joseph Adon Sparks, of 11202 Hillwood Drive, on a felony charge of second-degree sodomy.

Sparks is accused of having "an inappropriate sexual relationship" with a 15-year-old boy, Police Chief Floyd Johnson said Tuesday.

The allegation came to light in March, and Campbell investigated and obtained an arrest warrant for Sparks.

Sparks was booked at the Police Department and transferred to the Limestone County Jail, where bail is set at $15,000. He remained jailed Tuesday afternoon.
