Relationship with teen leads to Edinburgh man's arrest




An Edinburgh man was arrested after police said he had a sexual relationship with a 14-year-old girl.

John Jacob Young, 24, 406 Piatt Trailer Court, has been charged with sexual misconduct with a minor.

Police received a report about Young and a teenage girl. Officers visited Young’s home and found the 14-year-old there.

Young initially denied having a sexual relationship with the girl, but both Young and the girl later told officers they had engaged in sexual activity, the report said.

Young told police the girl said she was 17 but also said the girl’s mother told him she was younger, the report said.

He was arrested Friday and taken to the Johnson County jail, where he was being held on $8,000 bond.
