August 14, 2017
Holton, Kan. (AP) — Prosecution of a Kansas man accused of sexually assaulting several women has grown to $80,000.
The Topeka Capital-Journal reports that Jackson County attorney Shawna Miller decided early this year to seek a special prosecutor because charges against Jacob Ewing continued to grow, exceeding her resources. Ewing has been convicted of raping two women and acquitted in the sexual assault of a 13-year-old girl. He's also awaiting trial on charges that include attempted rape and sexual exploitation of a child. The allegations have divided his hometown of Holton.
