JACKSON COUNTY —Law enforcement authorities are investigating a Kansas man on child sex allegations.
The Jackson County Sheriff’s Office started the investigation after allegations were reported to the Sheriff’s Office in November of 2018. The Sheriff’s Office served search warrants on Hackathorn’s Facebook and Snapchat accounts, according to Sheriff Tim Morse.
On Thursday, the Jefferson County Sheriff’s Office arrested Phillip James Hackathorn, 34, of Holton on the Jackson County District Court warrant for indecent solicitation of a child and electronic solicitation of a child.
Bond on Hackathorn was set at $50,000. Hackathorn posted bond and was released, according to the sheriff. Hackathorn is expected to make a court appearance later this month.
