MEBANE, N.C. — A Mebane woman is facing sexual offense charges involving a child under the age of 16.

Gwendolyn Rae Cloutier, 45, of Mebane, is charged with indecent liberties with a child, two counts of statutory rape of a child and two counts of sex offense with a child.

Officials say the investigation began in September after the parent of the victim filed a complaint.

Cloutier was arrested Wednesday and placed under a secured bond of $250,000.
