Anchorage man charged with sexual abuse

Posted: Thursday, May 02, 2002

ANCHORAGE (AP) -- A 22-year-old Anchorage man is facing five counts of sexually abusing a 13-year-old girl.

Anchorage police said they were contacted two months ago by a father who said his 13-year-old daughter had run away and was involved in a sexual relationship with Shawn Steik.

The girl told police she met Steik at the downtown bus station and began having intercourse with him. Alaska law prohibits sexual contact by an adult with a minor under the age of 16.

Steik was arrested April 29. When interviewed by police, Steik admitted sleeping with the girl five times as well as smoking marijuana and drinking beer with her, the complaint said.

Steik was already wanted for violating his parole when this investigation began, according to a criminal complaint against him filed by police Detective Darren McShea. Steik's criminal record consists of second-degree sexual abuse of a minor, second-degree forgery, third-degree theft and criminal trespass. All the convictions occurred in 2000.

Steik's parole prohibited him from being in contact with any minors under the age 18 and drinking alcohol. He is being held at Anchorage Jail in lieu of $100,000 bail.
