    I have yet to see a report on the 55yr old woman from Jewell who was arrested last week on Class B Felony Sex Abuse charges. She is out on bond and is suspected of abusing others. Does the community not deserve to know? I understand you can’t report on every sex abuse case in the state, but this deserves attention.
