A Broken Arrow man faces a trial later this year on multiple charges of child sexual abuse and one charge of lewd acts with a minor.

A Tulsa County judge ordered 35-year-old Shane Bennett to stand trial following his June 15, 2012, preliminary hearing.

Court records show that the Oklahoma Department of Human Services notified Broken Arrow Police in February 2012 that a teenager was being molested by Bennett.

Those records stated a police investigation showed Bennett had fondled the victim on at least four occasions, sent her text messages and had the victim watch pornographic movies with him.

Bennett is currently out of jail on a $115,000 bond.

His next court appearance is set for July 9, 2012.
