A Dawson County man is being held in jail after being charged with several felony sex crimes.

Investigator Chris Carpenter arrested Corey Roger Voyles, 17, on Feb. 27, Public Information Officer Capt. Tony Wooten said.

Voyles was charged with kidnapping, false imprisonment, rape, aggravated sodomy, sodomy, sexual battery, two counts of aggravated sexual battery, child molestation, aggravated child molestation and enticing a child for indecent purposes. All the charges are felonies except for the sexual battery charge, Wooten said.

The charges stem from incidents that allegedly occurred between Jan. 24 and Jan. 26.

The victim, who was a family member of Voyles, spent two nights at Voyles residence when the incidents allegedly occurred, Wooten said.

The family relationship between the victim, a teen under the age of 16, and Voyles was not released.

Warrants were taken out for Voyles after a family member of the victim contacted authorities. The suspect was arrested at his home in the west end of the county, Wooten said.

It is not known if the victim suffered any injuries.

Voyles is being held without bond in the Dawson County Detention Center. A bond hearing is expected sometime later in the week.
