DRESDEN — A 22-year-old man was charged with second-degree rape Monday for allegedly having sex with a 14-year-old girl, according to State Police.

William Berthiaume, of Clemons, was accused of having sex with the girl he knew, who was too young to legally consent. Police believe there were two sexual encounters involving the couple, and additional charges are possible.

The state's age of consent for sexual contact is 17.

Berthiaume was arraigned and released, pending prosecution in Dresden Town Court.
