CORBIN — By John L. Ross / Staff Writer

A man indicted in September for sexual crimes against a minor was indicted on more charges Monday in Whitley County Circuit Court.

George Morning Clouse Jr., 45, of Jellico, Tenn., was handed a five-count indictment Monday for charges dating back to 2007. He faces five counts of first-degree sodomy. The first count states the crime allegedly took place Jan. 8, 2007. The second count alleges the crime to have occurred on Aug. 13, 2007. The third count alleges the crime took place June 1, 2008.
