The 43-year-old man was charged Thursday with rape of a child, a first-degree felony.The girl told a Salt Lake police officer that the man, a friend of her sister's, had sexual intercourse with her in a motel room Sunday at 230 W. 600 South, according to documents filed in 3rd District Court.

A man, who admitted having sex with the girl, was arrested two days later, the documents state. The man told police that "he figured (the girl) was 12 or 13 years old and he would probably just get probation for his offense."

The man is being held in the Salt Lake County Jail in lieu of $100,000 bail.
