 ALTON, Ill. (AP) - A southwestern Illinois man is jailed on $1 million bond after being accused of sexually assaulting a girl for about three years.

   The charges related to alleged sexual conduct when the girl was between 11 and 13 years old, from February 2001 and July of this year.

   A spokeswoman for the county state's attorney's office says the investigation began when the girl reported the allegations to a family member, who then notified authorities.
