A Kentucky man will be arraigned next week after being indicted on sex crime charges involving a 17-year-old girl, according to a Monday afternoon news release from the Jackson Police Department.

A Madison County grand jury indicted 37-year-old John David Jones, of Marshall County, Kent., Monday on charges of incest and statutory rape by an authority figure.

Both charges are Class C felonies, according to Tennessee Code Annotated.

Jones, whose bond was set at $75,000 in October when he was arraigned in Jackson City Court, remained in custody Monday at the Madison County Jail in lieu of bond.

Police said the 17-year-old girl's mother, who lives in Kentucky, reported the sex crime allegation to police on Oct. 10. Investigators learned that Jones and the girl had sex while staying at a Jackson hotel on Oct. 6.

Five days later, on Oct. 11, Jones was arrested by Kentucky authorities and held as a fugitive, police said. Jones eventually waived extradition to Tennessee and Jackson police transported him back to Jackson.

On Oct. 16, Jones was booked into the Madison County Jail. He was arraigned the next day in Jackson City Court and his preliminary hearing in city court was held on Oct. 24.

The case was referred to the Tennessee Department of Children's Services.
