A 34-year-old Morris man accused of sexually abusing a minor is wanted by local authorities.
Investigators say Earnest Pearson allegedly sexually abused a female between the ages of 13 and 17 in Morris sometime in early 2017.
Pearson has been charged with Aggravated Criminal Sexual Abuse, a class two felony and Criminal Sexual Abuse/Consent, a class four felony.
Pearson posted a $3,000 bond and was released after getting arrested in 2017. In July of 2018, Pearson was arrested for failing to appear in court and was released the next day on a $60,000 bond.
Pearson is still wanted by law enforcement after he failed to appear in court in late 2018. His bond has been set at $100,000. If you know of his whereabouts contact the Morris Police Department at 942-2131.
