Wake Co. man facing charges for several sex crimes in Brunswick Co.
BRUNSWICK COUNTY, NC (WWAY) — A Wake County man is behind bars in Brunswick County, facing charges for several sex crimes with a child.
Brunswick County deputies arrested Wake Forest man Frank Welsh Richmond, 36, last week after they say he had sexual relations with a child who was younger than 16 at the time of the crime. Richmond is charged with indecent liberties with a child and two counts of statutory rape.
Arrest warrants show that the offenses with the then 14-year-old happened in mid-June of last year. Deputies say Richmond was at least six years older than the child at the time of the sexual relations with the child.
A sheriff’s office spokeswoman says more charges against Richmond are expected. Richmond remains behind bars in the Brunswick County Jail a $1.5 million bond.
