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.

Temperatures were a heck of a lot more bearable earlier this afternoon - despite our northwesterly winds, temperatures peaked at 54° in Evansville earlier on and are expected to remain quite comfortable as we head into the evening hours. Expect temperatures ranging from 48° to 41° between 7 PM and 10 PM; though the added cloud cover over the coming hours will only allow temperatures to fall as low as 38° by early Wednesday morning. It's not all good news however, it looks as though some of us (especially those north of the Ohio River) could see periods of scattered rainfall throughout our Wednesday morning.
