Further child molest charges filed against man

GREENFIELD — A third felony child molest case has been opened against a Greenfield man who investigators said has been assaulting women since the 1990s.

Jerry W. Privett Jr., 47, was arrested in late September after a high school student reported being touched by Privett. News of the arrest brought a second woman to report Privett had harmed her around 1990, court records state.

A third victim has now come forward, leading prosecutors to file a Class A felony charge of child molest dating back to February 1995.

Privett now faces a fourth charge of child molest.
