JASPER, Ind. (WANE) – A 20-year-old has been arrested for having sexual relations with a girl under the age of 14.

Indiana State Police (ISP) said it began an investigation in October of 2020 into allegations of improper sexual contact between a man and a girl under the age of 14. 

During the nearly year long investigation, ISP said probable cause was developed that Mauricio Bolanos, 20, of Jasper, had sexual relations in early 2020 with a girl under the age of 14. Bolanos was over the age of 18 at the time of the interactions. 

On Sept. 10, a warrant was issued from the Dubois Circuit Court, charging Bolanos with:

  • Child Molesting – level 3 felony
  • Sexual Misconduct with a Minor- level 5 felony

On Tuesday, troopers found Bolanos at his home in Jasper.  He was arrested without incident and transported to the Dubois County Jail.
