Man From Ava Charged With Sex Crimes Against Young Woman

By Greg Brock. CREATED Apr 27, 2013

A week long investigation has landed a man from Ava in the Douglas County jail to face various rape, assault and other domestic violence charges. 

The sheriff says it started a week ago when deputies went to check on an 18-year-old woman staying with 31-year-old Jacob James.

She ended up needing to go to the hospital.

Deputies served a search warrant at James' home and arrested him.

He's in jail under a half million dollars bond.
