JASPER — Authorities took a Jasper man into custody Friday on a Dubois Circuit Court warrant charging him with felony counts of sexual misconduct with a minor and criminal confinement.

A warrant for McKee’s arrest was issued Friday. In it, he is charged with a Level 4 felony count of sexual misconduct with a minor, a Level 5 felony count of sexual misconduct with a minor and a Level 6 felony count of criminal confinement.
