Multiple sex crime charges filed against 19-year-old
KENANSVILLE, N.C. (AP) — Authorities in North Carolina have filed multiple sex charges against a 19-year-old after an investigation showed he had inappropriate contact with two girls aged 11 and 13.
News outlets report the Duplin County Sheriff’s Office says it learned on Aug. 9 that Stanley Stiles had exchanged nude photos on social media with one of the victims. A search of Stiles’ cell phone found pictures of other girls who investigators said appeared to be underage.
Stiles was initially charged and released on a $100,000 bond, but more evidence was found and additional charges were filed, including statutory sex offense with a child under 15 and two counts of contributing to the delinquency of a juvenile. He is now jailed on a $500,000 bond. It’s not known if he has an attorney.
