Teen gave candy to 5-year-old in exchange for sexual contact, troopers say
A 15-year-old boy is accused of giving candy to a 5-year-old girl in exchange for sexual contact, Alaska State Troopers said in an online dispatch Wednesday.
Troopers received a report on May 16 that the teen had given the candy to the girl on a school bus.
The 5-year-old revealed the abuse to The Children's Place in Wasilla, and video from the bus confirmed what the girl had reported, the dispatch states.
It's unclear whether the exchange of candy and the alleged abuse took place on the same bus ride.
Troopers say the teenager faces charges of fourth-degree sexual abuse of a minor. The Department of Juvenile Justice is handling the case.
