BOISE-- A 39-year-old Boise man in jailed on lewd conduct charges for having sexual contact with as many as six teenage girls over a 10-year period, according to the Ada County Sheriff's Office.

Lathan Spencer Flake is charged with two felony counts.

Detectives say the illegal sexual contact occurred between 1998 and 2008. They began investigating Flake on Aug. 1, 2013, after a woman in her mid 20s told Meridian Police about a 1999 incident at a Kuna-area home.

Upon further investigation, detectives determined Flake has sexual contact with at least five other teenage girls. All of the victims were known to him.

Flake was arrested early Tuesday and booked into the jail. Flake admitted to detectives that he had illegal sexual contact with some of the girls between 1998 and 2008.

The investigation is ongoing and Flake could face additional criminal charges. He will be arraigned Tuesday afternoon.

If convicted of lewd conduct, Flake faces up to life in prison.
