GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. (KJCT) -- A man accused of having sex with a 13-year-old girl was formally charged on Wednesday.

Dakota Hunter Anderson, 20, of Fruita, was arrested last June for sexual assault, pattern of abuse and contributing to the delinquency of a minor, according to officials.

Anderson allegedly offered the 13-year-old girl shots of alcohol before having sex.

An arrest affidavit said Anderson denied having any contact with the victim and said she was lying.

However, the Colorado Bureau of Investigation reported that a test found Anderson's DNA on the victim's underwear and on his mattress.

Anderson is due back in court Jan. 17.
