A North Carolina man is facing charges after a 12-year-old girl told police that an older man had sex with her since she was about 8, according to a report.

Dequinte Quentrell Hurley, 23, of 10217 Cedar Trail Lane, Pineville, North Carolina was arrested Monday and charged with incest, first-degree criminal sexual conduct with a minor and third-degree domestic violence.

On June 4, Greenwood police spoke with a 12-year-old girl who said a relative started having sex with her when she was about 8 years old, and said the last time it happened she was 10, the report said. She said it happened repeatedly and she couldn’t tell officers how many times it happened.

The girl told police she sent a text message to someone that she had a secret she had never told anyone, and the text messages alerted her family to ask her about what happened.
