TERRE HAUTE — A 22-year-old Terre Haute man faces a charge of sexual misconduct with a minor after allegedly having sex with a 15-year-old child in his pickup truck.

Monte J. King was arrested Wednesday on a warrant and appeared Thursday in Vigo Superior Court 3.

A probable cause affidavit states that King met the teen in late October or early November 2012, when he was taken to her house by a friend. The teen stated that she had consensual sex with King in the back of his Ford pickup truck. She told police she later went to the doctor for tests and found out that she had contracted sexually transmitted diseases that she believes were because of her sexual contact with King.

King was lodged in the Vigo County Jail with bail set at $50,000 with no 10 percent allowed.
