Police charge the 35-year-old Monroe man for a second time with having sex with the same 14-year-old girl.

The Associated Press

MONROE — Authorities say a 35-year-old Monroe man who was out on bail after being charged with having sex with a 14-year-old girl is back behind bars for having sex with the same girl.

Christopher Whitcomb was first charged by the Maine State Police on Nov. 13 with sexual abuse.

The Waldo County Sheriff's Office says while he was out on bail for that charge, police on Monday received a report that the teen had run away from home and might be with Whitcomb.

Police say they brought Whitcomb to the sheriff's office and he admitted to having sex with the girl again. He was charged with violation of release conditions and sex abuse of a minor.

He remains in jail without bail.

It was not clear if he had a lawyer.
