Teen charged with sex crimes

CUMBERLAND COUNTY Authorities have charged 19-year-old Charles Edwards with statutory rape, statutory sex offense and multiple counts of taking indecent liberties with a minor.

They say he had sex with a 14-year-old girl.

Edwards has denied he had sex with the girl, but investigators say a medical exam showed evidence of sexual activity.

The victim says the encounters occurred between August 1 and August 31 of 2010 at Edwards' home.

Edwards is being held in the Cumberland County Detention Center under a $100,000 secured bond.
