Fairfield man faces new teen sex-assault charges
An Oakwood Drive man faces new charges for sexually assaulting a 14-year-old female, police said.
Kerry McGuire, 38, was arrested at court Friday by Fairfield police on a warrant charging him with first- and fourth-degree sexual assault and risk of injury to a minor. He was arraigned that day and bond set at $200,000.
McGuire had been charged Aug. 6 by Shelton police, with two counts each of first-degree sexual assault, risk of injury to a minor and violation of a protective order in regard to the same teenager. His bond at that time was set at $150,000 and he was not released from custody.
According to Deputy Police Chief Christopher Lyddy, Fairfield police were contacted in June by the State Police Computer Crimes Unit, which had received a tip about a juvenile disclosing during a chat session for an online game that she had sexual contact with a man.
Lyddy said police were able to locate the teen, who said the incidents of assault began when she was in the fifth grade.
McGuire continues to be held on the charges.
