Headland Man Facing Felony Criminal Charges

Headland Man Facing Felony Criminal Charges

Kennon O’Bryan Hester, of Headland, has been charged with enticing a child for immoral purposes in connection to a July 21st incident involving two teenage girls.  Hester, who is currently out on bail for drug trafficking charges, was taken to the Houston County Jail where he is being held without bail.

Police arrested Hester after they received a complaint of a man chasing two juvenile girls from the 1300 block of Alexander Drive to a home in the 1200 block of Judson Street. Hester, 35, was taken into custody shortly after at the Alexander Court Apartment Complex. Dothan Police Lieutenant Will Benny has announced that neither victim, ages 13 and 14, were injured in this alleged crime.

Court records show that Hester was arrested earlier this month by Dothan police and charged with drug trafficking, drug manufacturing, and unlawful possession of meth.  He also has a second drug trafficking charge, and a drug possession charge pending from a 2012 arrest.

In the state of Alabama, enticing a child for immoral purposes is classified as a Class C felony.  This crime generally carries a maximum prison sentence of 10 years, and a minimum sentence of one year and one day. Fines may also be imposed but may not exceed $15,000.
