ANCHORAGE - A 46-year-old Anchorage man faces 64 felony counts of sexual abuse charges.

Dana Thompson was indicted Wednesday on charges of sexual abuse of a minor, unlawful exploitation of a minor and possession of child pornography.

Anchorage police said Thompson kept a girl as a sex slave on and off for nearly four years.

Police said Thompson named the girl his "little slave" through late spring of 2008.

Court records said when the girl left the state, she realized what took place was not normal, and contacted authorities.

Police arrested Thompson in December so he could be off the streets while continuing their investigation.

Police said the abuse began as "friendly kisses," but became more severe as the girl got older.
