(KMOV) – A Georgia man is being held on bond after police say he had sex with a teenage girl in a Fairview Heights hotel room.

Maurice Jackson, 20, was charged Sunday with aggravated criminal sexual abuse.

Police said the parents of the victim became concerned after they could not locate her Thursday night.

When the victim arrived home after 1:00 a.m. Friday, the parents questioned her about her activities and learned that she had sex with Jackson at Trailways Motel, located at 10039 Lincoln Trail.

According to authorities, Fairview Heights officers responded to the hotel and confirmed Jackson was staying there.

Officers watched the place until Jackson return to the motel at 6:15 a.m. He was then taken into custody.

Online court records don’t show whether Jackson has an attorney.

Jackson remained jailed Tuesday in Belleville on $75,000 bond.
