Jeremy Allan Keech, whose last posted address with the Arkansas Sex Offender regsitery was in the 900 block of Highway 124 in Hattieville (rural Conway County) was taken into custody just after 6 p.m,. on Wednesday and remains jailed awaiting a bond hearing according to court information.
Keech, who was convicted of the Rape of a Child Under the Age of 12 and Aggravated Sexual Contact with a Minor, also resided in Hartman in Johnson County at one time.
