A Fruita man accused of having sex with a minor and using a cell phone camera to record it is charged with several counts.

40-year-old Robert Fortier was charged Thursday with sexual assault on a child, sexual assault on a child with a pattern of abuse and contributing to the delinquency of a minor.

The arrest affidavit says Fortier had sex with a 14-year-old girl before the teen's mother found her daughter in bed with Fortier last fall. The affidavit says the girl told her mother and stepfather she had sex with Fortier, but she later recanted the admission.

Fortier has denied having sexual contact with the girl.

He's being held on $150,000 bail.
