San Andreas, CA — A Medford, Oregon man is in custody following a six-week investigation by the Calaveras County Sheriff´s Department.
54-year-old Darwin Jeter was arrested Friday and booked on charges of aggravated sexual assault of a minor, and lewd and lascivious acts with a minor under the age of 14.
The investigation was launched when a 15-year-old female told law enforcement officers that Jeter had sexually abused her about four years ago. Police say Jeter was a friend of the victim´s family.
Jeter was arrested without incident when he turned himself in to the Calaveras County Jail in San Andreas.
Jeter entered a plea of not guilty to the charges at his arraignment and is being held on $500,000 bail.
