Platteville man arrested for having relationship with 16-year-old girl

PLATTEVILLE (WKOW) -- A Platteville man faces more than 30 charges for allegedly having a sexual relationship with a 16-year-old girl.

The Grant County Sheriff's Department says it arrested 44-year-old Robert VanNatta.

Investigators were notified by the girl's family about her relationship with VanNatta. The officers say he was found to have been participating in sexual acts with the girl from October 2011 through March 2012. Investigators also found that VanNatta used a cell phone to send the girl sensitive materials.

Court records show VanNatta faces 30 counts of having sex with a child age 16 or older, a misdemeanor. He also faces one felony count of exposing a child to harmful material.

On Monday, a Grant County judge set a signature bond of $1,000.
