A Racine man is accused of sexually assaulting a teenager, and now faces felony charges.

Roy Wright, 68, was arrested Wednesday after the mother of the victim found photos of Wright's genitals on a cell phone, according to a police report.

The report stated that Wright started abusing the victim back in October 2018. He would reportedly ask the victim to come over to play video games and help Wright with his computer troubles. Later on, Wright would watch gay porn while the minor was at his residence, according to the complaint.

In the report, Wright is claimed to have told the minor that Wright 's cancer could be cured with the minor's semen.

After Wright was arrested, he reportedly kept telling detectives multiple times he was going to jail.

Wright now faces six felonies of using a computer to facilitate a child sex crime, exposing genitals, second degree sexual assault of a under child 16 years of age, sexual exploitation of a child, causing a child under 13 years of age to view/listen to sexual activity and repeated sexual assault of a child.

If convicted of all charges, Wright could face more than 169 years in prison.
