A Fleming man was arrested Sunday for repeatedly sexually abusing a child over about a two-year period, Auburn police announced Monday morning.
A lengthy investigation resulted in the arrest of Patrick E. Jackson Sunday morning. The investigation began after the child victim accused Jackson of repeated sexual abuse, the Auburn Police Department said in a release. He was located by APD members in conjunction with the U.S. Marshals felony warrant detail.
Jackson was also found in possession of child pornography. Several phones and computers were seized as evidence when the search warrant was executed at Jackson’s 6050 South St. Road apartment. After forensic analysis by the state police’s Computer Crimes Unit, at least one image of a child engaged in sexual conduct was found on his computers.
The 33-year-old man is facing two felonies and a misdemeanor charge. He was charged with first-degree course of sexual conduct against a child, a class B felony; possessing a sexual performance of a child, a class E felony; and endangering the welfare of a child, a class A misdemeanor.
