A Frederick man is behind bars for a number of charges including sex abuse of a minor.

Frederick County State’s Attorney says 33-year-old Nathaniel Reed is also facing a third degree sex offense and second degree rape. This comes after a young girl was overheard in a conversation talking about what sexual acts she engaged in with Reed earlier this year.

If convicted, authorities say sex abuse of a minor is a 25 year felony, as well as second degree rape and other related sex offenses.

“He was responsible for the care of this minor at one point…the sex abuse of a minor charge; which means you had control or care of the person at the time,” Said Frederick County State’s Attorney, Charlie Smith.

According to the Frederick County State’s Attorney’s Office, Reed is being held without bond and is awaiting his trial. Officials say a date has not been set yet .
