He is charged with one count each of aggravated sodomy, aggravated child molestation and enticing a child for indecent purposes, according to Dawson County Sheriff's Cpt. Tony Wooten.

"The incident is alleged to have happened between April 1 and May 1 at [Finch's] home in Dawson County," Wooten said.

He declined to give the victim's sex.
