Detroit Lakes man facing felony counts of criminal sexual conduct with child; bail set at $150,000

Bail was set at $150,000 for a Detroit Lakes man accused of criminal sexual conduct.

Christopher Alan Jones, 27, of Box 702, Detroit Lakes was charged in Becker County District Court with two felony counts of second-degree criminal sexual conduct.

According to court records, in August the Frazee police department received a report of possible sexual assault involving Jones and a girl under the age of 6 with whom Jones had a significant relationship.

During the time she stayed with Jones, he allegedly engaged in genital to genital contact with her, without clothing.

Jones appeared Wednesday before District Judge Peter Irvine, who set bond at $150,000 (combined with another criminal file) and with conditions that include no discussing the charges with the mother of the alleged victim.

His next court appearance is Nov. 16.
