A 42-year-old man has been charged with two counts of sexual activity with a child in Northamptonshire and one count of supplying a class A drug.
Northamptonshire Police secured charges against Craig Harrison, from Mansfield, in connection with the offences which took place last weekend in the Corby area.
Harrison was arrested yesterday afternoon in the north of England and transferred to custody in this county.
He was charged and held for an appearance before magistrates today, and has been bailed to appear before Corby magistrates on May 15.
Harrison has conditions that prohibit him from contacting the victim, entering Northamptonshire (except for a court appearance) or having unsupervised access with anyone under 18.
This investigation was carried out by the dedicated Reducing Incidents of Sexual Exploitation (RISE) team.
Anybody with any concerns about child sexual exploitation should call the Child Safeguarding Team on 0300 126 1000, Northamptonshire Police on 101 or 999 in an emergency.
