ATHENS COUNTY, Ohio (WSAZ) -- A man indicted for allegedly having sexual contact with a 9-year-old is now in jail.

The Athens County Prosecutor says James Dawson, 39, of Glouster, was arrested at his home Wednesday morning.

Dawson was indicted by an Athens County Grand Jury in September on one count of gross sexual imposition.

Prosecutors say that Dawson previously failed to appear for his arraignment and the victim’s family provided information on his whereabouts.

The alleged illegal sexual contact with the 9-year-old happened back in June.
