Man Charged for Raping Child
30-year-old Shaun Michael Howard was arraigned this morning by District Judge David Engman. Court records say he had sex with an 11-year-old girl at least seven times starting in June of this year. The girl reported the incidents to police yesterday.
Police interviewed Howard yesterday, when he admitted to sexually assaulting the girl, who is a relative of his.
A preliminary hearing has been scheduled for next Thursday.
