An Effingham County man already in jail on child molestation charges now faces another round of serious accusations.

Ryan Adam Bowen, 21, of Rincon, was charged Tuesday with sexual exploitation of a child, aggravated sexual battery and statutory rape after Effingham County Sheriff’s investigators searched his home and found several images of child pornography.

Bowen was charged last week with child molestation, enticing a child for indecent purposes and contributing to the delinquency of a minor. He is currently being held in the Effingham County Jail without bond.

Authorities said more arrests could be pending and the investigation is continuing.
