A Mitchell man who has turned himself into police was charged with multiple counts of rape and having sexual contact with a minor.

Donald Jackson, 30, faces two counts of first-degree rape of a person under 13 and eight counts of sexual contact with a child under 16 for allegedly having sexual contact with a 7-year-old girl up to 10 times in the past two years, court documents state.

According to court documents, Jackson went to the Mitchell Department of Public Safety on Oct. 21 to report he had been inappropriately touching the 7-year-old girl, saying he touched her "up to eight different times" and performed acts constituting rape on two separate occasions.

Bond was set at $10,000, and Jackson was ordered to have no contact with the girl.

The two first-degree rape charges are Class C felonies, punishable upon conviction by up to life in prison and a $50,000 fine. The eight sexual contact charges are Class 3 felonies, each punishable upon conviction by up to 15 years in prison and a $30,000 fine.
