CAVE CITY, Ark. (AP) — Court records show an Arkansas man is facing more than 50 counts of rape after admitting to investigators that he repeatedly sexually assaulted a young girl over a two-year period.

Thirty-six-year-old Joey D. Robbins of Cherokee Village was being held Monday at the Sharp County jail. He’s also charged with dozens of other counts that include engaging children in sexually explicit conduct.

The mother of a 13-year-old girl notified authorities that the teen had been ordered by Robbins to send him nude photos of herself.

An arrest affidavit says the girl’s friend, also 13, was told to send him nude images as well. Robbins admitted to raping the second girl, beginning when she was 10.

The affidavit says Robbins admitted to “making some bad choices.”

Jail records don’t indicate whether Robbins has an attorney.
