PALERMO — A Palermo man has been charged with having a sexual relationship with an underage girl.

Jason Baldwin is being held in jail on $10,000 cash bail on charges of sexual abuse of a minor, refusing to submit to arrest and escape.

Police started an investigation late last month when the 38-year-old Baldwin was found banging on a 16-year-old girl’s window. A spokesman for the Waldo County Sheriff’s Office tells the Kennebec Journal ( ) that in follow up interviews, the girl told investigators that she had had a sexual relationship with Baldwin that started when she was 15 that had recently ended.

Baldwin was arrested Friday, after he fled into his home.

It was not clear if Baldwin had an attorney.
