Man charged with sexually abusing 15-year-old girl

Posted: Thursday, March 20, 2003

FAIRBANKS (AP) -- A Fairbanks man has been charged with sexual abuse of a minor for allegedly having sex with a 15-year-old girl.

Police arrested Franciso D. Martinez, 24, on Monday outside an Airport Way retail establishment where his wife works.

Martinez is charged with one count of second-degree sexual abuse of a minor and one count of third-degree sexual abuse of a minor.

The two charges stem from incidents that occurred between December and February and were reported to police on March 9, according to Detective Randy Coffey.

Court documents say Martinez and the victim have known each other as family friends since she was a young child.

Martinez was being held Tuesday at Fairbanks Correctional Center in lieu of $10,000 bail.
