A 33-year-old man faces a charge of statutory rape by an authority figure after he had sex with a 16-year-old foreign exchange student staying at his home, according to a Hamilton County Sheriff's Office affidavit.

Michael Little, who already posted a $10,000 bond, is expected to appear before Hamilton County General Sessions Court Judge Clarence Shattuck on May 6.

The incident came to light after the girl confided to a teacher at her high school about what happened. She said Little was ignoring her after they had sex last month.

The Times Free Press is choosing not to identify the school or where she lives to protect her identity.

The teacher notified the principal, Child Protective Services, the school's resource officer and the director of the student exchange program.
