Gardnerville man accused of sex with girl

GARDNERVILLE, Nev. (AP) – A Gardnerville man is being held on $20,000 cash bail after his arrest for allegedly having an on-going sexual relationship with a 13-year-old girl.

The Douglas County sheriff’s office says 26-year-old Michael Anthony Abbott was arrested Friday on charges of lewdness with a child and luring a child under the age of 14.

Authorities say Abbott began contact with the girl through My Space, and their relationship developed into a sexual nature. They say the girl’s parents found out and warned Abbott to stay away from her because of her age, but the relationship continued.
