Staff Writer

A Viola man was charged with sexual assault June 21 after the Arkansas State Police investigated a complaint by an 8-year-old female.

Justin L. Hutson, 19, has been charged with sexual assault in the second degree, a class B felony.

According to an affidavit released by the Fulton County Clerk's office, Hutson and the alleged victim were at the girl's aunt's home in Viola when the incidents took place.

The affidavit says Hutson, on two separate occasions in April, took the girl into a bathroom and committed a sexual act with her.

Arkansas State Police Crimes Against Children Division Investigator Jannette Cooper said Hutson admitted to committing the sexual acts with his accuser.

Bond for Hutson was set at $10,000. He posted bond the same day. Hutson was scheduled to be arraigned July 1 in Fulton County Circuit Court.
