A Jasper, Indiana man was arrested and charged with Child Molesting and Sexual Misconduct with a Minor after a year-long investigation conducted by state police.

The Indiana State Police says 20-year-old Mauricio Bolanos was arrested at his Jasper home on Monday after the lengthy investigation, which began back in October of 2020.

Back in 2020, Indiana State Police Master Trooper Jarrod Lents began the investigation. During the investigation, ISP says probable cause was developed that Bolanos had sexual relations in early 2020 with a girl under the age of 14.

According to ISP, Bolanos would have been over the age of 18 at the time of the accused incident.

After being arrested on Monday, Bolanos was booked into the Dubois County Jail.

Sure, yesterday's passing cold front and lingering rainfall made for a cooler-than average, fall-like day across the Tri-State - today on the other hand, was a bit more summer-like. The core of high pressure flowing in behind that cold front has now settled to our east and is actively pumping southerly winds, more heat and gulf humidity back into the Ohio valley. As a result, temperatures pushed back into the mid 80s for the majority of the region; the added humidity even made it feel a few degrees hotter as well. As for the rest of the evening, conditions will remain dry with temperatures gradually falling from 80° around dinnertime into the mid to low 70s by 10PM. The combination of added cloud cover overnight and those aforementioned southerly winds will help keep temperatures mild tonight - we'll only dip as low as 67° early Friday morning in the River City.
