A Lawrence County Megan's Law offender was charged Tuesday with having sexual relations with a 13-year-old girl, state police said.

Ivan Carl Schaefer, 39 of New Castle is charged with statutory sexual assault, involuntary sexual deviate intercourse, corruption of minors, possession of child pornography and other offenses connected to his involvement with the girl. Schaefer was arrested Thursday and is being held in the Lawrence County Jail on $100,000 bond. His preliminary hearing is scheduled for May 8.

Schaefer lived with the girl's family in Wilmington Township beginning on Feb. 14. The girl's mother became suspicious of Schaefer's relationship with her daughter, according to court records, and evicted him on March 16. The girl told her mother about her sexual relationship with Schaefer on April 18.

The relationship, which included the two electronically exchanging nude photos and meeting in Schaefer's truck for sex, continued after Schaefer moved out of the girl's house.
