Truck driver accused of crimes against children

Posted: Updated:

FARRELL, Pennsylvania - Jaime Jones' last known address is in Oxford, North Carolina.

But authorities in Mercer County accuse the truck driver of preying on four young children when he made stops in Farrell and Sharon to visit family.

21 News was there as 43-year-old Jones appeared at a preliminary hearing in Farrell.

He's accused of rape against three of the victims and indecent assault against a fourth child.

The judge will review recorded testimony of the victims to determine whether there's enough evidence for the case to go to trial.

A hearing was held under the Honorable Robert Yates who permitted the recorded testimony to be reviewed by the magisterial district judge in lieu of the testimony in court by the children.
