A former North Carolina superior court judge is accused of committing a sex offense against a child, according to Ashevillle police.
Daniel Ray Green, 64, faces two felonies and two misdemeanor charges after an incident police say occurred at a hotel near the Biltmore Estate, according to the Asheville Citizen-Times.
Green couldn’t be reached for comment, the Citizen-Times reported.
Officers responded Saturday to the hotel “after reports of a sexual assault on a juvenile, who was known to the suspect prior to the incident,” Asheville police spokeswoman Christina Hallingse said in an email to McClatchy.
Green was arrested Sunday and charged with first-degree statutory sex offense with a child, disseminate obscene material to a minor, give fortified spirits to persons under 21 and contributing to the delinquency of a minor.
“A judge told Green Monday in court he could face life in prison if convicted by a jury for statutory rape of a child,” WSOC reports.
