A 50-year-old man from Jasper County is charged with sexually assaulting an 18-year-old woman.
Prosecutors say Hector Gonzalez, from Carthage, twice got the victim drunk and forced her to have sex with him.
He's also accused of trying it a third time. But instead of using alcohol, prosecutors say Gonzalez preyed on the victim's fear of what he would do if she refused.
Gonzalez has bonded out of jail.
