Police have arrested a man for several sexual offenses against a minor that took place over a 19-month span.

Paul Clifton Canally, 29, was arrested Wednesday at his home by Clayton Police detectives.

The arrest comes after a single victim reported several allegations against Canally that allegedly began in April 2010 and lasted until December 2011.

Canally is facing five felony counts of statutory rape, five felony counts of indecent liberties with a child, eight misdemeanor counts of sexual battery, and 13 felony counts of third degree sexual exploitation of a minor.

The exploitation charges stem from a search of Canally's home, where authorities seized child pornography.

Authorities say the victim is not related to the subject and is between 13 and 16 years of age.

Canally was placed in the Johnston County Jail under a $1.02 million secured bond. The investigation is ongoing, according to police.
