SALISBURY — The Spencer Police Department on Sunday charged Peter Kiever, 26, with felony statutory rape of a child 15 or younger.

The alleged offense occurred between Nov. 19, 2018 and Dec. 7, 2018.

Kiever was previously convicted of a number of other sex offenses. In October 2019, Kiever pleaded guilty to two counts of felony indecent liberties with a child, one count of felony first-degree sexual exploitation of a minor, nine counts of felony second-degree sexual exploitation of a minor and six counts of felony disseminate obscene material to a minor. Those charges came after a multi-year investigation by local law enforcement agencies into Kiever posting nude photos of young girls on social media platforms.

Kiever was issued a $250,000 bond Sunday and booked in the Rowan County Detention Center.
