A Utica man has been charged with forcible touching and endangering the welfare of a child.

The Oneida County Child Advocacy Center says 38-year old Doel Sepulveda was arrested after a lengthy investigation into his involvement with a teenage girl.

Investigators say the victim reported the inappropriate contact Sepulveda allegedly had with her in his Utica home to the Child Advocacy Center last month.

An order of protection has been requested for the victim, who has been offered counseling through the CAC.

More charges are possible as the investigation continues.
