A Charlotte man is accused of sexually assaulting a 13-year-old mentally disabled girl.

Reid was in the Mecklenburg County jail Thursday on $150,000 bail, jail records show. Reid was jailed Nov. 30.

Police also charged Reid with five counts of third-degree sexual exploitation of a minor.

In a second case, Reid is accused of sending obscene material to a minor and soliciting illegal material from a minor from his home on Umstead Street in Plaza Midwood, according to a police report.

Reid was jailed on those charges on Nov. 28 and posted the $250,000 bail the next day, jail records show. He was jailed on the other charges two days later.
