Texas County authorities said a Houston teen is charged with two crimes following his arrest by the Texas County Sheriff's Department.

Texas County authorities report that 18-year-old Blythe Brotherton, of Houston, has been jailed and faces multiple charges after having sexual relations with a girl under the age of 14.

A probable cause statement submitted Sunday by the Texas County Sheriff’s Department to Prosecuting Attorney Mike Anderson indicated that the victim told authorities she and a friend had sneaked out of her house at about 12:30 a.m. Saturday, met with Brotherton and ended up at a trailer off of Highway E. According to the statement, the victim said the incident occurred when she fell asleep while watching TV.

Brotherton is held in the Texas County Jail on charges of first-degree statutory rape and first-degree statutory sodomy. His bond is set at $500,000.
