GENTRY (KFSM) -- A Gentry man is accused of sexually abusing a 16-year-old girl for nearly three years.
Timothy Horace Setzer, 51, was arrested Thursday (Feb. 7) in connection with two counts of rape, a Class Y felony.
The girl said Setzer has sex with her three to five times a week between 2014 and 2017, according to a probable cause affidavit.
Setzer said the girl was lying and denied any inappropriate contact.
Setzer was being held Friday (Feb. 7) at the Benton County Jail on a $100,000 bond. He has a hearing set for March 18 in Benton County Circuit Court.
In Arkansas, rape is a Class Y felony, which signifies the most severe crimes not punishable by death.
A person convicted of a Class Y felony could face life in prison, according to Arkansas Code Annotated 5-4-401.
