SAWYER, N.D. (AP) — Bond has been set at $250,000 for the superintendent and high school principal in Sawyer accused of felony sex crimes involving a 15-year-old boy.
Fifty-year-old Charles Soper is charged with human trafficking, corruption or solicitation of minors and luring minors by computer. He could face life in prison without parole if convicted.
Soper was arrested Tuesday at the school. Court documents don't list an attorney for him, and a listed telephone number for him couldn't be found.
Police allege Soper developed a sexual relationship with the boy last fall and that it continued into this spring, when the boy disclosed details to officers. Investigators seized computers from Soper's home.
Soper appeared in court for the first time Wednesday afternoon.
