Colchester man accused of sexually abusing teen

A Colchester man is behind bars, accused of having sexual relations with a juvenile.

Melvin Brown, 34, faces charges of aggravated criminal sexual abuse.

The McDonough County Sheriff says the arrest warrant stems from an investigation into Brown having sexual relations with a 16-year-old girl on three occasions between last November and March of 2013.

Brown is currently in the Schuyler County jail on similar charges.

He will be transferred to the McDonough County jail when his other criminal case is completed.
