— A former North Carolina State University employee was arrested Friday on child-sex charges, according to police.

Marvin Christopher Jones, 44, of 714 East Street in Raleigh, is charged with first-degree sex offense with a child and taking indecent liberties with a child.

The arrest warrant indicated the alleged crimes happened between January 2007 and January 2008. Police said he knew the child.

Jones listed NCSU as his employer on arrest documents. University officials confirmed he worked there as a building environmental technician, but they did not say when he was terminated.

Jones was being held at the Wake County Detention Center under a $500,000 bond, according to police.

    Great, another one. Maybe he can "pray" this away like the Duggar family did too.

    Was the crime related to his duties at NCSU? Did they happen on the campus of the university? For that matter, what was his job there?

    Did anyone realize this is a 7 - 8 year old crime ?

    I'm not sure why the storyline even mentions NCSU, it brings no pertinence to the story at all. Just another reporter trying for a sensational heading I'm sure. Might have been better serving to the community if WRAL reported what specific area this person was from ???

    What darn job did he have?

    Why exactly does it matter that he's a former NCSU employee? It's not like he was a former police officer or elementary school teacher. There's no reason to put that in the headline, unless the goal is just to make NCSU look bad.

    Bond not high enough.
    Any kind of an abuse on a child should have no less than a $1M bond, to keep other children safe from them while they root around for all that money.
