A Macon man has been arrested for multiple sex offenses against children. Authorities arrested 34-year-old Johnathan S.

Investigators learned that Taylor had allegedly sexually assaulted two underaged girls dating back to 2017 in Macon County. Taylor has been arrested and formally charged with seven counts of second-degree statutory sodomy, six counts of fourth-degree child molestation, one count of second-degree statutory rape, and one count of patronizing prostitution.
