Man charged with sex abuse, kidnapping of 14-year-old

Kentucky State Police have charged a Paris man with kidnapping and sexually abusing a 14-year-old girl who had been reported missing from Lawrenceburg.

Brian T. Jones, 19, was arrested Tuesday on three counts of second-degree sexual abuse and one count of kidnapping.

The girl was reported missing Sunday, and the state police post in Dry Ridge received an anonymous call Monday that she had been seen at a gas station in Bourbon County.

Police said Jones met the teen when she was 13 through the Web site MySpace. Jones met the girl in person after she ran away, according to state police.

The Herald-Leader doesn't identify alleged victims of sexual abuse.
