JEFFERSON COUNTY — Bail has been set at $200,000 for a 32-year-old Ina man charged Wednesday in Jefferson County court with sexually assaulting a child under the age of 13.
Jefferson County Sheriff’s deputies arrested Dustin Crone Tuesday night on a $200,000 warrant that was issued earlier that day.
He appeared in court Wednesday on two Class X felony charges of predatory criminal sexual assault of a victim under the age of 13 and Class 2 felony aggravated criminal sexual abuse of a victim under the age of 13.
Crone was advised of the charges against him and possible penalties if he’s convicted.
He was also warned that if he posts bond and is released he can be tried and sentenced in absentia if he fails to appear for court actions.
Crone’s next scheduled to appear in court November 14, for a preliminary hearing and first appearance with his court appointed attorney.
