He is charged with two counts of first-degree sexual abuse and one count of first-degree sodomy.

DOVER, Del. - A Dover man has been sentenced to life in prison on rape and sexual abuse charges, the Delaware Department of Justice announced Friday.
Eric Curry, 35, was caught having sexual intercourse with a young girl in November 2015 when the young girl's sister witnessed the crime. Curry was convicted of sexual abuse by a person in a position of trust or authority and second degree rape in a bench trial in December 2016.

A 36-year-old Burney man who pleaded guilty in December to raping a 13-year-old girl and fathering her baby was sentenced Friday to 25 years to life in prison.
Adam Ted Goad, who must register as a sex offender if he's ever released from prison, kept his head bowed as Shasta County Superior Court Judge Cara Beatty imposed his life prison sentence.
She also ordered him to have no contact with his victim and her child for 10 years.
Goad took a plea bargain in December, pleading guilty to rape and a related enhancement in exchange for the 25-year-to-life sentence.
Initially charged with rape, aggravated sexual assault, lewd and lascivious acts with a child and other charges in connection with his original 18-count felony case, he was arrested June 2, 2015, more than a year after the teen had given birth to the baby.
Testifying at Goad's September 2015 preliminary hearing, now retired Shasta County sheriff's Detective Keith Sharp said the girl told him she had been sexually assaulted by Goad on numerous occasions, including once only days after he submitted his DNA to authorities investigating the sexual abuse.
Evasive and reluctant during initial interviews with authorities to name her baby's father, the girl later identified Goad after being shown DNA evidence that showed he was the father, Sharp wrote in an earlier sheriff's report.
A Department of Justice criminologist who tested Goad's DNA also testified at that hearing that while the DNA tests weren't a perfect match, it was "strong evidence" that he is the biological father of the baby girl.
Authorities have said Goad originally denied the charges, but later admitted to forcing himself on the teen once after they told him the teen identified him as the baby's father.
"Goad said he was drunk and stupid one time and that he didn't realize what he had done with (her) until (it) was over," Sharp wrote in his report.
The Shasta County District Attorney's Office said Goad was sentenced under a "one-strike law" for sex offenders that provides for potential life sentences for certain crimes if those crimes involve additional special allegations.
Goad had also been charged with felony sexual battery in an unrelated case in which a woman said she was sexually attacked by him in 2012, but that case was dismissed.
FARMINGTON — A 58-year-old Blanco man is facing felony charges on allegations he molested a young female relative on several occasions over a three-year span.
Joseph Martinez was arrested in February by the San Juan County Sheriff's Office after the pre-teen girl told a social worker he had touched her inappropriately, according to the arrest warrant affidavit.
The first of the incidents occurred when the child was watching television about three years ago. The girl told police Martinez touched her stomach and her breasts under her clothes, according to the affidavit.
The affidavit alleges that incidents of sexual abuse continued over the past few years and included Martinez penetrating the girl. The girl alerted the counselor to the incidents after Martinez tried to rape her in February. She told police she kicked Martinez off of her during the incident and tried to punch him, according to the affidavit.
The girl was taken to the Sexual Assault Nurse Examiner Office, where a nurse found what appeared to be bite marks on her inner thigh, as well as bruises and abrasions on her legs, according to the affidavit.
Another young relative told police she would sometimes play doctor with Martinez, the affidavit states.
Martinez has been charged with criminal sexual contact of a minor in the second degree and criminal sexual penetration in the first degree.
A Gainesville man was arrested Friday after police said he beat and sexually assaulted a victim younger than 18.
According to a Gainesville Police Department arrest report, George Benny Bryant, 36, used a hard plastic jump rope to whip the victim "over the past several months," leaving significant scars.
The report said on or around January 30, Bryant sodomized the victim.
When authorities searched Bryant's residence Thursday, they reported finding 8.68 grams of marijuana and drug paraphernalia.

A man jailed for 15 years for the rape and sexual assault of a woman whose child he abducted in the same incident, has lost an appeal against his conviction.
Michael Murray (46), formerly of Killiney Oaks, Killiney, Dublin, was jailed for 15 years for rape, attempted rape, oral rape and aggravated sexual assault, child abduction, threats to kill or cause serious harm, false imprisonment and theft at a Dublin apartment on February 12th and 13th, 2010.
The Central Criminal Court had heard that Murray lured his female victim into an apartment by telling her that an elderly woman was dying inside and needed her help.
He tied her up and assaulted her before taking her son away abandoning him in a city centre square late at night. He returned to the flat where he drugged and raped his victim.
Murray had denied the charges. However he was found guilty on all counts by a unanimous jury decision.
His conviction was affirmed today by the Court of Appeal. The Director of Public Prosecutions are due to seek a review of his sentence on grounds that it is “unduly lenient”.
Giving background to the case in the Cout of Appeal today, Mr Justice George Birmingham said that at 4.10pm on the date in question, the complainant, a young Chinese woman, was walking home from work in the Smithfield area of Dublin accompanied by her four year old child when she was “lured” into an apartment by Murray on the false basis that there was a sick lady inside who needed help.
Thereafter, Murray locked them both into the apartment and subjected to the woman to an “escalating and relentless ordeal of rape, attempted rape, sexual degradation and violence, drugging her, binding and gagging her and threatening to kill both her and her young son”.
