Pioneertown musician, western re-enactor arrested for 3 felony sex charges

A 55-year-old Pioneertown man was arrested this week and charged with three felony charges related to child molestation.

Jonathan Andrew Linn was taken into custody at his Pioneertown home about 4 pm on Tuesday, according to Z107.7. Linn is a local guitar maker, western re-enactor, and musician who was party of the Stagecoach lineup in 2010, heading the John Linn Band, which was a last-minute substitution on the lineup.

Linn is accused of having a relationship with a 14-year-old girl for more than a year, reports the Desert Sun.

Linn was an assistant football coach at Yucca Valley High School, but was relieved of his duties following the allegations.

Sheriff’s investigators believe there may be other victims.  Anyone with information should call (760) 366-4175.
