A man from Danforth is accused of raping a 13-year-old girl and getting her pregnant.

35-year-old Charles Hoyt was indicted recently by the Washington County grand jury.

He’s charged with five counts of gross sexual assault.

The charges stem from the fall of 2012.

Prosecutors say Hoyt abused the girl for about six months.

We’re told he was convicted in 1999 of sexual misconduct with a niece.

Hoyt remains in the Washington County jail.
