A Princeton man is jailed on a $100,000 cash-only bond for allegedly abusing a three-year-old girl.

Jonathan M. Seal, 23, was charged with sexual abuse, first degree sexual assault, and child abuse resulting in injury. 

According to court documents, the charges stem from a child abuse investigation after the child's grandmother noticed bruising to her  facial area. A physical examination of the child indicated she may have been sexually abused. 

Seal agreed to a polygraph examination during which he showed deception when questioned about the alleged abuse. During a subsequent interview, Seal admitted to sexually abusing the child and hitting her in the face and ear with a belt. 

Detective K.L. Adams, working with the Mercer County Prosecuting Attorney's Office  handled the investigation.
