Teens charged for sex with girl

Two men have each been charged with Class B felony child molesting for having sex with a 13-year-old girl on different occasions.

There is no bond set for Charles V. Nafus III, 19, of Lake Station because he is already charged with Class D felony theft in a case from last year, and Joel W. Bogdan, 19, of Portage has a $3,000 bond set.

Both face six to 20 years in prison.

Police learned about the incidents when the girl was being interviewed on an unrelated matter and said Nafus was her boyfriend and they had regularly sex between August and September and that she had sex with Bogdan during November and December.

Nafus allegedly said he knew about Bogdan having sex with the girl, and she said both knew her age.

Neither is listed in the Porter County Jail automated system.
