A Franklin man has been charged after a teenage girl claimed he twice sexually assaulted her back in 2004 when she was four years old.
23 year-old Mark DeLuca was arraigned on charges of indecent assault, indecent exposure and the corruption of a minor. He was lodged in the Venango County Jail with bail set at $15,000.
The alleged victim, who is now 14, said she was molested at a residence in Franklin in the spring of 2004, and in a rental truck late that same summer. DeLuca would have been 13 at the time.
The girl in the case reportedly told her story to youth service workers this past November.
