New details were released on Monday in the underage sex crime arrest of a nine-year veteran Mississippi broadcast meteorologist.
WLBT-TV, for which Eric Law, 32, worked since 2004 in Jackson, reported he exchanged Facebook messages with a 15-year-old girl that revealed their sexual contacts, according to his arrest report.
When investigators interviewed the girl, she confirmed she and Law had been intimate at Law's house on several occasions in Madison.
The girl reportedly told investigators that when she would spend the night with Law, the two would go to the "law and order room" and engage in sexual behavior.
Eric Law was arrested March 7 by Madison police and charged with two counts of sexual battery and two counts of gratification of lust.
Law, who is married but doesn't have children, was released on $200,000 bond.
"Eric Law has been suspended until further notice," said WLBT News Director Wilson Stribling last week.
Each count of the sexual battery charges carries a potential penalty of up to 30 years in jail and a $10,000 fine, while each count of the gratification of lust charges carries a potential penalty of 15 years in jail and or $5,000 in fines.
Sexual battery under Mississippi law is defined as sexual penetration with a child who is at least age 14 and under 16 years of age, while gratification of lust involves inappropriate touching of a minor.
