Warrant issued for man who had alleged sexual relations with teen girl

A 24-year-old man is facing criminal charges for allegedly having a sexual relationship with a minor.

According to information filed in 3rd District Court, a girl under 14 years of age told her mother she had been “involved” with Cody Dipo. The girl told her mother she had performed various sexual acts with Dipo, according to the information, and that Dipo had attempted to have sexual intercourse with her but was unsuccessful.

When the mother and girl reported the events to police, the girl picked Dipo’s photo out of a photo lineup. On Friday, Dipo was charged with two counts of sodomy on a child, a first-degree felony, and three counts of sex abuse of a child, a second-degree felony. A warrant for Dipo’s arrest was also issued Friday.

Dipo’s community of residence was not specified in court documents.
