The teen is accused of molesting a younger boy.
A 16-year-old Washington Court House boy has been charged with a felony charge of gross sexual imposition after he allegedly inappropriately touched an 8-year-old boy he was babysitting.
Reports say that the incident occurred on Saturday evening and was reported to police Sunday morning after the boy told his parents what allegedly occurred. Under the Adam Walsh Child Protection and Safety Act of 2006, the case must be transferred to adult criminal court and be treated as if the alleged offender was an adult at the time of the alleged offense.
If convicted of the third degree felony, the accused could spend five years in prison and face a fine of $10,000.
