A 23-year-old North Liberty, Iowa man faces criminal charges in connection with his alleged relationship with a 13-year-old girl.

A police complaint says Seth Sackett, 23, is exchanged “numerous text messages” with the girl that discussed their “dating relationship.”  The complaint also alleges Sackett touched the girl inappropriately and that he “admitted to officer he and the victim kissed and that he touched the victim’s thigh.”   The contact is alleged to have happened in mid-November 2013.

Jail records show Sackett was arrested in Bettendorf just after midnight on December 6, 2013 where he was accused of using a false ID and possession of a controlled substance.   He was held in the Scott County Jail until he was released to Johnson County authorities Wednesday, January 22, 2014.

Jail records show Sackett was held in the Johnson County Jail in lieu of $10,000 cash-only bond.

Court records show Sacket was charged in Johnson County with one count of indecent contact with a child.  His next court appearance there was scheduled for February 3.
