A 24-year-old Junction City man was arrested and booked yesterday by Salina police.

Michael Diederich, now 24, has been charged with 15 cts. of rape. The victim, under the age of 14 when the crimes took place back in 2008, is a Salina resident; the two were acquaintances.

Even five years after her experiences began with Diederich, the victim is still not of consenting age.
