WINCHESTER, Ind. — Authorities said a Randolph County teenager was sexually assaulted by a Michigan felon she met on FacebookBrandon M. Kolc, 22, is charged in Randolph Circuit Court with rape and sexual misconduct with a minor.
According to documents filed by Prosecutor David Daly’s office, a 15-year-old girl said she had twice had sex with Kolc — who lives in the Detroit suburb of Gibraltar — after he traveled to Randolph County on Nov. 20.
The girl told Randolph County sheriff’s deputies their first encounter — in Kolc’s car, in the parking lot of a local church — was “consensual,” although in Indiana the age of consent for sex in most instances is 16.
The victim said the following day Kolc picked her up at school and drove her to an abandoned casket factory, where he raped her, choking her during the assault.
The girl apparently believed Kolc was 19 and from Illinois.

The rape charge is a Level 3 felony carrying a standard nine-year prison term. Sexual misconduct with a minor is a Level 5 felony with a standard three-year sentence.
Kolc was convicted of attempted home invasion in Wayne County, Mich., in 2015.
