Wallace man charged with sex crimes against child he lived with

PENDER COUNTY, NC (WWAY) — A Wallace man faces charges for sex crimes against a young boy who deputies say he lived with when the offenses happened.

Pender County detectives say Carlos Martinez, 39, committed the crimes against the child, who is 4-years-old, on May 10, just a day before Mother’s Day. They say Martinez was arrested on Monday after the child’s parents reported the crimes to the sheriff’s office on Mother’s Day.

Investigators say Martinez was living in the boy’s home when the incidents happened, as well as when they were reported by the parents. They say the child’s parents told deputies Martinez was a family friend.

Martinez is charged with indecent liberties with a child and first-degree sexual offense of a child. He is in the Pender County Jail under $135,000 secured bond. Deputies say Martinez already had his first appearance in court.
