BLUE RIVER, Wis. (AP) -- A southwestern Wisconsin man is charged with having sex with his biological sister.

The 25-year-old man from Blue River was charged Friday with incest. The felony charge carries a maximum penalty of 12.5 years in prison and a $25,000 fine.

The criminal complaint says the man and his sister had repeated sexual contact between July 4 and Dec. 15, 2009. The complaint doesn't list the sister's age but Grant County Sheriff's Sgt. Jim Kopp says she's an adult.

The Associated Press doesn't identify victims of sexual crimes and isn't naming the man to protect his sister.

The complaint says the man told investigators his sister was the aggressor. He also told investigators his sister filed court documents identifying him as the father of a child she had in February.
