MARION COUNTY, IL — A 54-year-old Patoka man was reportedly arrested over the holiday weekend on two counts of predatory criminal sexual assault.

When deputies contacted the 33-year-old woman she reportedly told detectives Jenkins had sexually assaulted from the time she was six until she was 10-years-old.
