Iredell County authorities say Cory Tyler Salerno, 19, of Mooresville, faces 10 felony sex charges.

A 19-year-old from Mooresville faces 10 sex-related charges for his alleged sexual relationship with a 13-year-old, according to the Iredell County Sheriff’s Office.

Cory Tyler Salerno is jailed under a $300,000 bond in the case, deputies said.

Investigators said the 13-year-old told a friend, and the friend contacted authorities earlier this month. The alleged offenses took place between August and December, according to deputies, who also said the suspect was a family friend of the victim.

Deputies said Salerno was charged with four counts of first-degree rape, four counts of statutory rape and two counts of first-degree sex offense with a child.
