A 29-year-old man is facing multiple rape charges after his arrest Wednesday.
Halifax County deputies say Douglas Smith of Scotland Neck is charged with statutory rape of a 14-year-old, two counts of statutory rape of a 15-year-old and statutory sex offense with a 15-year-old.
Deputies say the girl was raped by Smith, who they say was a long-time family friend, several times over the past seven months.
Smith turned himself in to Scotland Neck police after learning there were warrants out for him. His bond had been set at $50,000.
