VALPARAISO | A 21-year-old Portage man faces a felony count of sexual misconduct with a minor on allegations of having sex with a 14-year-old girl in her bedroom.

The girl reportedly told police Bradley Franchville, of 5726 Old Porter Road, entered her house without permission on May 27 and requested a hug.

The two began to kiss and Franchville pushed the girl into her bedroom where he began having sex with her, police said.

The girl said she asked Franchville to stop, to which he replied, "If you love me, then you will let me finish," according to police.

Franchville reportedly told police he kissed the girl on the day in question and had thoughts of having sex with her.

Franchville is charged with a B felony, which carries a potential penalty of six to 20 years behind bars.
