(KNZA)--A Hiawatha man facing multiple sex and drug charges waived his right to a preliminary hearing Wednesday.

Jeremy Stover was was bound over to Brown County District Court for arraignment on June 24.

Stover is charged with eight counts---including three felony counts of promoting the sale of sexual relations, three misdemeanor counts of sexual battery, a felony count of distribution of opiates and a misdemeanor count of possession of a depressant.

The charges were filed in February 2023 following an investigation by the Brown County Sheriff's Office.

Federal authorities, who had been investigating Stover this past year for alleged federal drug violations, recently decided not to proceed with charges against him.

Stover remains free on a $50,000 bond.
