ROWAN COUNTY, N.C. March 25 2012
A Rowan County man was arrested and charged with molesting an 11-year-old girl and sexually violating a dog, deputies said Thursday.
Matthew Darrell Curtner, of Salisbury, was charged with three counts of first degree sex offense of a child, bestiality and cruelty to an animal by torture.
According to the Rowan County Sheriff’s Office, detectives began a joint investigation with Department of Social Services officials after receiving allegations that 29-year-old Curtner was molesting an 11-year-old girl.
A detective visited Curtner at his Mt. Hope Church Road home Wednesday where Curtner admitted he had been molesting the girl for several months, deputies said. During the conversation, Curtner said he had also had sex with a female pit bull-Chow mix.
According to deputies, Curtner said the sex acts with his dog happened regularly. He also admitted to other sex offenses he committed over the last 20 years, deputies said. Those incidents are under investigation.
Deputies said further charges are expected against Curtner for the offenses against the 11-year-old, but said those would be determined after a meeting with the Rowan County District Attorney.
Medical exams have also been scheduled for other children in the home, deputies said.
Curtner’s bail was set at $1 million. He is expected to be in court Friday.
