Alaska man accused of raping a child

    Fairbanks, Alaska (KINY) Court records show a Salcha man is accused of raping a child on multiple occasions over a 12 month period.

    Timothy Houger, 52, appeared in court to answer charges of first degree sexual assault of a minor.  He entered a not guilty plea and the case was placed on the trial calendar.  The charging documents state Mr. Houger inappropriately touched the child between November, 2003, and November, 2004 when the child was six years old.

    A grand jury returned an indictment in the case in June.  Houger has prior arrests for assault, trespass and negligent burning.
