An Elizabeth City man is in custody under a $100,000 secured bond after being charged with five felony sex offenses involving a child.
Jacob-Charles Clayton Baker, 21, of the 400 block of Elcinoca Drive, was arrested Jan. 17 and charged with one felony count each of statutory sex offense with a child by adult and disseminating obscenity, and three felony charges of taking indecent liberties with a child, according to a Pasquo-tank County Sheriff’s Office arrest report.
A grand jury indicted Baker on all charges on Jan. 6 and warrants for his arrest were issued the same day.
According to copies of court documents, the alleged offenses occurred over two period of time and involved the same child, who was younger than 16 in each incident.
