A 30-year-old Madison man is facing charges for sexual assault of a child.

A criminal complaint details the allegations against Josiah Peeples.

The victim is reportedly a 15-year-old boy who told investigators that he met Peeples on Craigslist and the pair communicated, exchanging photos before a sexual encounter in May.

The complaint said both admitted they had sexual contact in a UW parking garage.

Peeples told police he knew the boy was still in high school.
