A Mercer County man is facing charges after allegedly raping an 11-year-old girl and pay her or buy her vape products in return.

According to a criminal complaint, 50-year-old Charles Byrne of Sandy Lake had been raping the 11-year-old victim and providing her with vape products in return.

Police say this all came to light June 29 when the alleged victim's parents caught her with the vape products. When asked where she got them, she told her parents she got them from Byrne, who had been raping her and giving them to her in return.

Police then spoke to the alleged victim who told officers this alleged conduct had been going on for about a year in Byrne's shed and in his home. The alleged victim said this would happen two to four times a week with the last time being just two days prior to speaking with police.

The alleged victim told officers the first time this happened, she asked Bryne what he was going to do, to which he allegedly told her to "shut the **** up" and another time used a sexual object with her.

The alleged victim went on to say Byrne would either pay her or buy her vape products in exchange for sex and would tell her not to tell anyone about what he was doing.

Police were eventually able to get in contact with Byrne and told him he was not to have contact with the victim or her family and that an investigator would contact him soon.

When Byrne was told this, police say he responded, "I know I'm going to jail." When police asked why he thought that, he said he knew he was accused of rape.

Police say Byrne was told this, he denied raping her, but said they did "mess around," and when asked what that meant, police say he replied that he had "intercourse" with the alleged victim.

Police say Byrne also admitted that he knew they alleged victim was 11 years old and said the last time they had sex was two days prior on his back porch and also admitted to doing it in the shed and bedroom according to police.

Police say Byrne told officers that the alleged victim "came onto him."

Byrne is facing multiple charges including five counts of rape of a child, one count of statutory sexual assault, one count of indecent assault, one count of corruption of minors and one count of sale of tobacco.

He was in court June 29 and appeared for a preliminary hearing on Wednesday, July 10. He's due back in court for a formal arraignment September 10.
