The Grant County Sheriff's Department says a Platteville man is facing 30 counts of sex with a minor after her parents contacted them on Saturday.

Deputies say the parents of a 16-year old girl notified them that Robert J. Vannatta, 44, was having a relationship with their daughter.

After investigation, it was determined that Vannatta had sex with the girl from October 2011 until March of this year.  They also say that Vannatta used a cell phone to send "sensitive materials" to the girl.

Vannatta is charged with 30 counts of sexual intercourse with a child age 16 or older and one count of exposing a child to harmful materials or harmful descriptions or narrations.

Vannatta has been released from the Grant County Jail.
