Man caught with teen, charged with child molestation
Consensual relationship leaves 21-year-old facing sex offenses
Matthew Alan Sensenig

    A 21-year-old Georgia Southern University student caught Thursday in a car with a 13-year-old female faces sex offense charges, police said.
    A tip about a suspicious person sent Statesboro Police to a Rucker Lane location Thursday night, where they discovered Matthew Alan Sensenig, 21, Lost Mountain Trace, Kennesaw, in the vehicle with the juvenile girl, said Statesboro Police Maj. Scott Brunson.
    Sensenig “had been seeing the girl for some period of time,” he said. Once officers located Sensenig in some woods behind Vaden Nissan, they took him into custody and both he and the teen were taken to the Statesboro Police Department for questioning.
    Det. Patrick Harrellson learned Sensenig had been having a sexual relationship with the girl, and the resulting investigation led to Sensenig being charged with aggravated child molestation and enticing a child for indecent purposes, he said.
    Sensenig is being held without bond at the Bulloch County Jail.
    The girl was turned over to her mother’s custody, Brunson said.
