A 20 year-old Knoxville man has been arrested for 11 counts of 2nd degree sexual abuse.

Jamie Lee DeHeer was arrested Tuesday after the Marion County Sheriff’s Office received complaints of him sexually abusing an underage individual. The incidents occurred in 2005-2008.

A no contact order has been filed between DeHeer and the victim and any person under the age of 18. A preliminary hearing has been set for April 29th at 9:30am in the Marion County Courthouse.

DeHeer is currently being held in the Marion County jail on a $275,000 cash only bond.
