A local woman was arrested on Tuesday for allegedly sending explicit, pornographic videos and images to a minor.
According to Pike County Sheriff James E. Nelson, on Oct. 20, Jessica E. Jones, age 29, of Young Road, Lucasville, was arrested and charged with fifth-degree felony Disseminating Matter Harmful to Juveniles and second-degree felony Child Endangerment.
According to Nelson, Cpl. R. Cottrill received a report on Sept. 4 involving Jones sending explicit, pornographic videos and images to a 15-year-old.

Jones was taken into custody and booked into the Butler County Jail.”
According to Nelson, Jones went to court on Wednesday to answer to the charges and received a bond of $50,000 with a 10% provision. A case will be presented to the next session of Grand Jury on Nov. 20., he stated.
