ELKO, Nev. (AP) — A 22-year-old Elko man has been arrested after his wife told sheriff's deputies he had sexual contact with an underage girl.

Elko County Undersheriff Clair Morris told the Elko Daily Free Press Matthew Blake was booked into the county jail Sunday on suspicion of statutory sexual seduction.

Morris says that after Blake's wife telephoned authorities, he willingly went to the sheriff's office and admitted during an interview he had slept with the 15-year-old girl.

Blake told detectives it was an isolated incident but they are continuing to investigate. His bail was set at $5,000.
