A Fargo man has been arrested after a teenage family member reported sexual abuse over the course of the last year to year-and-a-half.
Christopher Leiva, 36, was taken into custody Friday night.
He is being charged with abuse, aggravated abuse, and the neglect of a child, as well as gross sexual imposition.
In a search warrant, police collected baby oil, and other items used in the assault described by the victim. The victim told police that the abuse would happen at Leiva’s home and said sex would be used as forms of punishments for not doing chores.
He is being held in the Cass County Jail.
