LAKE CHARLES, LA (KPLC) -

A 20-year-old Lake Charles man has been arrested on a sex crime charge for the second time in three years, authorities said.

Calcasieu Parish Sheriff's Office spokeswoman Kim Myers said Jonathan Lee Harris was arrested Wednesday on a charge of felony carnal knowledge of a juvenile.

Harris has been accused of having sex with a 14-year-old girl in September 2013.

Bond was set at $300,000 by Judge David Ritchie.

"Harris was previously arrested (in September 2011) by the Sheriff's Office after an investigation revealed he had sexual contact with a 4-year-old," Myers said.

Harris was indicted on a charge of sex crimes involving juveniles but was released in November 2012 after posting the $50,000 bond set by Ritchie.
