DeJarlais was arrested Dec. 29, 2008, for allegedly sexually assaulting two female juveniles. He has since remained in the Cumberland County Detention Center.

Detective Judy Rosenberg, of the Fayetteville Police Department's Youth Services Division, continued the investigation into DeJarlais and filed more charges against him Friday afternoon.

His bail was raised to $9.105 million.
