A trial is underway in a Columbiana County courtroom for a man accused of repeatedly raping a child as young as three over a three-year period.

According to a secret indictment handed up in August, 35-year-old David Jones engaged in sexual conduct with a child that had not yet reached the age of four.

The indictment alleges that Jones, who now lives in Ypsilanti, Michigan, engaged in the alleged conduct from January 2014 to December 2016 in Columbiana County.

Jones is charged with three counts of rape, one count of sexual battery, and one count of gross sexual imposition.
