A Casper man is accused of committing sex crimes.

Thirty nine year old Michael Andrews has been charged with two counts of second degree sexual abuse of a minor.

Investigators with the Casper Police Department say from January 2008, through December 2009, the female victim claims that there were three times that Andrews touched her inappropriately.

When interviewed, he acknowledged that he knew what had happened and in one instance, said he was under a great deal of stress from having to serve nights in jail on an unrelated matter at the time, and he was having issues with his ex-wife and other child.

Andrews is awaiting trial on $50,000 bond and could face up to 20 years in prison on each charge if convicted.
