Vancleave Man Charged With Sexual Abuse

A Jackson County man faces sexual abuse charges in connection with an incident involving a child.

Authorities say 37-year-old Dana Lee Schnarrs of Vancleave is charged with molesting a girl earlier this year. The incident allegedly occurred before the end of the 2001-02 school term.

Sheriff's investigator Sergeant Kim Versiga says the child, who was seven at the time, told her teacher about the incident, and the school called state Department of Human Resources officials.

The sheriff's department was notified through the district attorney's office.

Schnarrs is free on ten-thousand-dollar bond.
