Man Arrested For Alleged "Consensual Sex" With 12-Year Old Girl

They say the sex was quote, "consensual" but authorities call it rape.  A 24-year-old Miller county man is now behind bars, for allegedly having so called "consensual sex" with a 12-year old girl. Anthony Carter is charged with 2 counts of rape. Even though the 12-year old girl says they were in a relationship, because of her age, she is not old enough to make that decision.

Possible charges against Carter are also pending in Caddo Parish for an alleged incident that also occurred in Oil City between him and the same 12-year old. Sheriff's deputies say an anonymous tip to the states child abuse hotline led authorities to the alleged abuse. Carter is in Miller County jail with a bond set at $200,000.
