A 19-year-old New Canaan male turned himself in to police custody after learning there was a warrant for his arrest for his alleged sexual assault of a 15-year-old New Canaan female in August.
Isaiah Maisonette, of Lakeview Avenue, was charged with sexual assault in the second degree, risk of injury to a minor and delivery of alcohol of a minor, all felonies.
According to police, the sexual assault charge stems from the fact that the age of consent in Connecticut is 16.
"In this case, age played a factor," Sergeant Carol Ogrinc said Tuesday.
Police said the victim initially came forward and told police what happened, and because of her age, her parents got involved as well. A warrant was then obtained for Maisonette's arrest in early September.
Maisonette was released on $100,000 and given an Oct. 19 court date.
According to berecruited.com, Maisonette was a member of the Class of 2012 at New Canaan High School and was an athlete.
