Teen waives preliminary hearing in sodomy case

Friday, January 28, 2011

Circuit Court Judge Gary A. Kamp heard no testimony Thursday in the case against Benjamin B. Harrison II, as the 17-year-old waived his right to a preliminary hearing.

Harrison, of Jackson, is charged with statutory sodomy, a felony, and will appear in court again for his arraignment Feb. 7. He's accused of making a 7-year-old have oral sex with him.

According to court documents, Harrison confessed to the sodomy in a police interview, claiming he "wasn't thinking" and had smoked marijuana before the incident.
