From staff reports

NASHVILLE, Tenn. - The Tennessee Bureau of Investigation has arrested a Pulaski man on several sex charges after information was developed this week about male and female juvenile victims he had abused over the course of approximately the last seven years.

Maurice Dale "Jimmy" McAllister, 80, was arrested Tuesday on one count of aggravated rape, one count of sexual battery and one count of aggravated burglary in Giles County. Details of the abuse were uncovered this week by law enforcement and the district attorney assigned a TBI agent to investigate allegations of sexual assaults by several members of a local Amish community in Giles County.

In addition to the arrest, TBI executed a search warrant yesterday on McAllister's residence, 2750 Big Dry Creek Road, northwest of Pulaski, to obtain evidence in the case. The investigation is continuing and the subject could face additional charges at a later date.

McAllister was booked into the Giles County Jail on $250,000 bond.
