Jackson County Sheriff’s Department announced the arrests of three suspects on child sex charges this past Friday.

According to WLOX, investigators were following up in April on information from the Mississippi Department of Child Protection Services concerning alleged sexual abuse of a 14-year-old-girl.

The alleged abuse would have occurred when the victim was ages 4-12 while living in Biloxi and St. Martin.

According to Sheriff Mike Ezell, a search warrant served at a home in St. Martin led to evidence supporting the victim’s claims. Investigators also found child sexual abuse material owned by the homeowner, Travis Wade, a Vicksburg native.

Wade, 48, top picture, is charged with two counts of possession of child pornography. His bond is set at $500,000.

Christina Baylis, 33, pictured bottom left, is charged with one count of sexual battery and one count of possession of child pornography. Her bond is set at $750,000.

Robert Baylis, 48, pictured bottom right, is charged with one count of sexual battery and one count of possession of child pornography. His bond is $750,000.
