OCEAN SPRINGS, MS (WLOX) - A former Ocean Springs martial arts instructor is behind bars in Florida charged with multiple counts of sexual battery of children. The U.S. Marshal Service arrested Allen Todd Pisarich Tuesday morning in Santa Rosa, Florida.

Pisarich was first arrested in April 2017 on two counts of sexual battery of a child.

The Jackson County Sheriff’s Department now confirms a grand jury indicted Pisarich on four more counts of sexual battery of a child, two counts of touching a child for lustful purposes and one count of attempted touching of a child for lustful purposes.

Pisarich was the owner of The Academy of Mixed Martial Arts in Ocean Springs when the investigation into the allegations began in late 2016.
