A Jamestown man has been taken to the Chautauqua County Jail after a grand jury handed up an indictment charging him with eight counts of crimes against children.
Jason R. Alexander, 30, of Jamestown was charged Monday with two counts of predatory sexual assault against a child, two counts of first-degree sexual misconduct against a child, second-degree sexual conduct against a child, and three counts of endangering the welfare of a child.
According to a police report, Alexander was indicted by a grand jury for offenses that happened over 10 months.
