LINCOLN COUNTY  •  A 45-year-old man has been charged with five counts of first-degree child molestation after deputies say he had inappropriate contact with a girl younger than 14.

Glenn O. Reed of the first block of Oak Valley Drive, was being held Monday in the Lincoln County Jail on $50,000 cash-only bail.

According to police, the crimes took place at Reed's home in December 2012 but were not reported until late last month.

Reed told police he touched the girl while they slept together in a bed, but he claimed he believed the victim was an older woman.
