MAYSVILLE, Ky. (WKYT/FOX19) – A former substitute teacher for the Mason County School District has been charged with sex abuse of a young boy.

Sister-station FOX19 reports that 21-year-old Aaron Clancy was arrested after police received a complaint from the parents of the juvenile victim.

The parents reportedly told investigators Clancy had touched their son on his genitals and kissed him. They also said their son was forced to touch Clancy’s genitals.

A juvenile witness reportedly met with investigators as well and claimed he saw Clancy kiss the victim and touch the victim’s genitals.

When Clancy was interviewed, officers say he told them he may have accidentally touched the victim’s genitals while watching a movie. He also said he had kissed the victim on the head as a joke.

The victim advised investigators that there were further instances of Clancy inappropriately touching the victim on two separate occasions on Aug. 30 and Aug. 31.

Clancy was arrested and is being held in the Mason County Detention Center, charged with 1st-degree sexual assault.
