A Plainfield man has been arrested after being accused of sexually assaulting a 12-year-old family member.
Police said Curt Bernier, 41, was arrested at his home Thursday morning on an outstanding arrest warrant.
The arrest comes after a lengthy investigation by authorities after it was learned Bernier was having sex with a 12-year-old member of his family.
Bernier was charged with first-degree sexual assault, fourth-degree sexual assault and two counts of risk of injury to a minor.
He was being held in jail on $100,000 bond and was expected to appear in court later in the day on Thursday.
