TOPOCK—A Topock man was arrested Monday after an investigation into a report of alleged drug and sexual assault on a minor was investigated by the Mohave County Sheriff’s office.

James Karl Lauver Jr., 36, of Topock is facing 28 felony charges, seven of which are sexual misconduct with a minor after police alleged he provided the minor female illegal drugs, sexually and physically assaulted her, said Mohave County Sheriff’s spokeswoman Anita Mortensen.

He is being held at the Mohave County jail in Kingman.
