MARION — A 37-year-old Marion man was charged Saturday after being accused of sexually abusing a woman at his home in August.
James Edward Hamous, of Marion, is charged with third-degree sexual abuse.
According to a criminal complaint, a woman told police Hamous engaged in a sex act by force or against her will at his home in Marion on Aug. 14.
When interviewed by investigators, police said, Hamous admitted inappropriate and nonconsensual physical contact with the woman. However, Hamous claimed he “never advanced as far as alleged,” according to the complaint.
Hamous was arrested, and a $15,000 bond has been posted as of Monday.
If convicted, he could face up to 10 years in prison.
