WORTHINGTON — A Worthington man was arrested and charged last week after being accused of sexually assaulting a juvenile.
Mauricio Morales-Morales, 21, faces felony first-degree criminal sexual contact with a person under 13. The charge and accusations include penetration.
According to court documents, the alleged sexual assault was initially reported in January. A child was interviewed by Child’s Voice in Sioux Falls, S.D. and alleged that Morales-Morales had inappropriately touched her. The two were acquaintances.
Conditional bail was scheduled at $100,000 and unconditional at $200,000. Conditions prohibit him from having contact with the victim or having contact with persons younger than 18.
