LEXINGTON, Ky. (LEX 18) – A Lexington man charged with the rape of a child under the age of 12 is facing new charges.

Justin Franklin Elam was first charged last Saturday. In addition to the rape charge, he is now facing three counts of first-degree sexual abuse and six counts of promoting a minor under the age of 16.

Police say the charges are the result of videos found on his phone, as well as statements made by the alleged victim of the sex abuse charges.
