Charleston Man Faces Sex Assault Charges

A Charleston Man is facing serious charges after being accused of having sex with a young girl he met on the internet. Mark Loring Dawson was indicted on four counts earlier this week by a federal grand jury. The girl lives in Ohio, and police say Dawson drove there and picked her up. Federal prosecutors said he then took her to a hotel in New Martinsville, Ohio, where the alleged acts occurred on two occasions between May 2012 and April of this year. If Dawson is convicted, he could face from 30 years to life in prison.
