GRANVILLE -- A 23-year-old Granville man was charged with third-degree rape Monday for allegedly having sex with an underage girl, according to State Police.
Clinton L. McFarren was charged with third-degree rape, a felony, for allegedly having sex with a girl who was younger than 17. The two met on the Facebook social networking website, according to State Police.
The charge does not allege he physically forced the girl to have sex, but it accuses him of having sex with a person who was too young to legally consent.
McFarren was also accused of fighting with State Police officers who arrested him and possessing the drug hashish, police said.
He was charged with resisting arrest and seventh-degree criminal possession of a controlled substance, police said.
McFarren was arraigned and sent to Washington County Jail for lack of bail.
