19-year-old accused of sexual contact with pre-teen Fargo girl

FARGO – A 19-year-old Bismarck man is facing charges after police say he forced a Fargo girl younger than 15 to have sex with him on multiple occasions.

According to charges filed Monday in Cass County District Court, Trey Lee McDonald allegedly first forced the girl, whom he knew, to have sex with him when he was 13 or 14 years old and the girl was 10 or 11.

The alleged victim told police that between 2007 and 2008, McDonald tried to have sex with her at least 15-20 times.

Court documents allege that McDonald admitted to having sex with the girl but claimed it was consensual because he and the girl have feelings for each other.

McDonald is charged with one count of gross sexual imposition, a Class A felony.
