A Trenton, Georgia, man was arrested Monday on statutory rape charges.
Bobby Black, 29, was allegedly in a relationship with a 16-year-old girl since around June and began having sex in August, according to a relative of the girl, court records show.
The relative also told investigators that Black provided the girl with marijuana and alcohol, according to court records.
A counselor at the girl's high school reported the case to Child Protective Services, and filed for emergency temporary custody transfer to the girl's grandmother, court records state. That was done because there was reason to believe the girl's parents had been aware of the sexual relationship.
The girl was taken to a local hospital for medical evaluation.
Black was charged with aggravated statutory rape, and more charges may be filed at a later date.
