Stanley Marsh 3, an eccentric millionaire artist who faces criminal charges alleging he sexually abused six teens, has been sued by a man accusing him of molestation in 2008.

The lawsuit filed Thursday in Potter County alleges Marsh sexually abused the man when he was 16 and paid him $500 to sign a confidentiality agreement at 18.

In February, Marsh settled lawsuits from 10 teenagers who alleged he paid them for sex acts.

Last month, Marsh was indicted on charges of sexual assault of a child and sexual performance by a child and two counts of indecency with a child.

If convicted, the 75-year-old Marsh faces up to 20 years in prison. His attorneys deny the allegations.

Marsh is best known for the "Cadillac Ranch" along Interstate 40 near Amarillo.
