Six months after admitting to a sexual relationship with a 15-year-old girl, an Ames man is finally behind bars.

Twenty-four-year-old Josh Blehm was arrested Thursday and charged with third degree sexual abuse.

Police say Blehm turned himself in last April, after he had a sexual relationship with a girl he met through a church group.  

The girl eventually filed a police report and in August an arrest warrant was issued for Blehm.

Police only caught up with Blehm last week.

He’s being held in the Story County Jail on a $10,000 bond.
