A Swain man is accused of driving to the Piedmont and having sex with a 12-year-old girl he met on Facebook.
19-year-old Christopher Griffith is charged with two counts of taking indecent liberties with a minor and first degree statutory rape. Investigators say he met the girl at a home in Spring Lake, just outside of Fort Bragg. Griffith is a student at the Oconaluftee Job Corps Center in Cherokee.
Griffith is being held in the Swain County Jail, awaiting extradition to Cumberland County.
