A 25-year-old Sedalia man has been accused of rape by a 15-year-old girl.

The Sedalia Democrat reports Travis James Clunie was arrested April 29. The victim alleges that Clunie had sex with her twice after youth group meetings at a local church.

According to the Democrat. Clunie first denied the accusations, but then admitted to having sex with the girl, that he knew she was 15 but that it was consensual.

Clunie has also been charged with first degree sodomy in a separate case where he allegedly forced a woman to perform a sex act at Katy Park in January.
