FAIRVIEW HEIGHTS • A man from Georgia has been charged with aggravated criminal sexual abuse after police say he had sex with a 15-year-old girl in a Fairview Heights motel room.
Maurice Jackson, 20, of Wrens, Ga., was charged Friday in St. Clair County Circuit Court. The parents of the girl became concerned after they couldn't find her and she arrived home at about 1 a.m. on Thursday. They learned she had been at the Trailways Motel at 10039 Lincoln Trail, and told her parents and later police she had sex with a man who was staying there.
Police identified the suspect, and waited at the hotel until he returned at about 6:15 a.m. He was arrested without incident.
