Investigators in Vermont and New Hampshire have filed multiple felony charges against a Williamstown man accused of luring a runaway child he met online.
Daren Arsenault, 51, is being held without bail on multiple counts of lewd or lascivious conduct with a child, aiding a runaway and other charges. He has pleaded not guilty.
Police say Arsenault purchased alcohol for the runaway juvenile on multiple occasions.
Arsenault is also accused of soliciting a 10-year-old girl in Vermont and attempting to solicit a 14-year-old girl in New Hampshire.
Officials say he will be extradited to New Hampshire to face other charges.
