Hayfork Man Suspected of Child Molestation

Another Trinity County man has been arrested on suspicion of child molestation, and the Sheriff’s Office is again asking for additional victims to come forward. There’s been a steady progression of sex offender arrests in recent weeks in Trinity County. The latest is a man from Hayfork named Billy Bates. He was arrested earlier this month. The Sheriff’s Office has not released any details of the charges Bates is facing, but they believe that more victims have not yet been identified. It’s hoped that they’ll come forward now that Bates is locked up. Anyone with information should call Detective Josh Ford at 623-8106. A photo of Bates is on the KQMS Facebook page.
