A local man arrested on suspicion of sex-related crimes last week has had his case dismissed.

The District Attorney’s Office  had filed a single child abuse charge, but later dismissed it, against Aaron N. Jones, after he was arrested on suspicion of several sex-related crimes including  sex with a minor.

The sex charges weren’t filed and a child abuse charge was dismissed after the District Attorney’s Office deemed there was insufficient evidence, said Deputy District Attorney Annamarie Padilla.
