The Sheriff’s Office received information on the case earlier this month. Lt. David St. Laurent conducted an investigation, Sheriff Scott Nichols Sr. said Thursday.

St. Laurent arrested Christopher Hills-Pettitt, 40, on Wednesday on a charge of unlawful sexual contact, Nichols said.

He is being held without bail at the Franklin County Detention Center. He is expected to go before a judge Friday to have bail set.

A conviction on the charge is punishable by a maximum five years in prison and as much as a $5,000 fine.
