Ryan Zachary Farnell

A teenager from Blue Eye has been charged with statutory sodomy for an alleged incident that happened at his home last summer.

Authorities say the mother of a four year-old girl reported that her neighbor, Ryan Zachary Farnell, 18, inappropriately touched the little girl while she was coloring at the boy's house on Happy Trails Lane.

According to court documents, Farnell allegedly admitted to the crime when he was interviewed by Detective Bruce Belin at the Stone County Sheriff's Office on January 16th.

He is being held in the Stone County jail on $250,000 bond.
