April 27th, 2017 by WCBC Radio

On April 21st a 36 year-old Oldtown man was arrested in connection to sex offenses against a 14 year-old female victim.  Despite the nature of the charges, Jason Leo Slider was released by a district court commissioner on his personal recognizance pending his next court appearance. The Allegany County State’s Attorney’s Office petitioned the Court for an immediate review of the Commissioner’s decision to release Slider on his own recognizance. WCBC News has learned that the decision of the commissioner was allowed to stand based on the fact that it was Slider’s first offense; and the incident in question occurred more than ten years ago.
