They are set to appear in court on Wednesday.
The couple, who are very active on Facebook. alluded to the charges in posts they put up on the social media site over the past few days.
'I have made so many mistakes in my life, some big, some small, but none have ever carried bigger consequences for myself, my children, and the people I love,' wrote Louis on Thursday.
'I may not be present for awhile, either long, or short, but I will carry all of the memories along with me, of every time one of you has made me smile, cry, laugh, or cringe.
'I love the life I have built for myself, and the thought of losing that reduces me to tears, to weeping like a child who's ice cream has tumbled into the street.'

'Seriously, grope your friends, it lets them know that you like them and is a bonding experience for both of you....'
The charging documents claim that the couple 'discussed all the risks' of their relationship with the girl, and knew that what they were doing was illegal.
