December 9, 2008

NAHANT, Mass. (AP) - A Nahant man is facing charges of molesting a boy and providing drugs to the child over a period of years after befriending the boy's mother. Police tell The Daily Item of Lynn that 41-year-old David Jones was arrested on Monday and charged with child rape and distributing obscene material to a minor. He is scheduled to be arraigned Tuesday.

Police say the alleged victim was abused for eight years, starting before his eighth birthday. The boy's mother reported the abuse Saturday night after learning of the allegations from her son.

Police say when the alleged victim became reluctant to see Jones, the suspect allegedly provided the child with marijuana, Klonopin, Vicodin, Methodone and alcohol. It was not immediately clear if Jones had a lawyer.
