A Mercer County man has been arrested on a sex charge involving a minor.

Mercer County Sheriff Jeff Grey releasing the information Monday morning that 58-year-old Jerry Fisher of Rockford was taken into custody Sunday for unlawful sexual conduct with a minor. The sheriff's office received a call on Saturday that Fisher had been having sexual relations with someone under the age of 16 in the recent past. An investigation in cooperation with the Mercer County Job and Family Services was initiated which revealed that Fisher had sex with the underage victim on multiple occasions. After consulting with the Mercer County Prosecutor, Fisher was arrested and Celina Municipal Court Judge James Scheer set Fisher's bond at $750,000.

Fisher has a history as a sexual offender and had been required to register his address with the sheriff's office for 10 years. That requirement expired in 2015. The Mercer County Prosecutor's Office is reviewing the case to determine if any additional charges should be filed.
