Man admits molesting 14-year-old girl, police say

— SUNBURY — A Mifflinburg man sent his girlfriend’s 14-year-old daughter text messages showing photos of his genitals, touched the girl’s breasts and placed her hands down his pants, Northumberland police said.

Christerfer Wilson, 23, was arraigned Wednesday by District Judge John Gembic after police said Wilson confessed to the incidents in the Northumberland Police Station.

Wilson told police the teen asked to kiss him. He agreed, and they continued to kiss while he put his hands up her shirt and touched her breasts, police said. The girl slid her hands down his pants and fondled him for about 15 seconds, court documents said.

The girl then stopped, police said. Wilson asked her what was wrong, according to court documents.

She said she didn’t feel right about what they were doing, and the pair stopped, police said.

The alleged victim was interviewed by Northumberland County Children and Youth and told caseworkers she knew Wilson for about a year, court documents said.

Wilson sent her text messages of his private parts, the girl told police, and he told her the only reason they were not dating was her age, according to court documents.

Wilson starting sleeping at her mother’s house, the girl told police, on a sofa in the living room.

On one occasion, Wilson and the girl were playing a video game when Wilson stuck his hand inside her shirt and took the teen’s hand and placed it down his pants, court documents said.

The incident stopped after Wilson attempted to unbutton her pants, police said.

Wilson is charged with four felony counts, two charges of unlawful contact with a minor, one count of corruption of minors and once count of obscene and other sexual materials. Wilson also is charged with a misdemeanor count of indecent assault.

Wilson was placed in the Northumberland County Prison in lieu of $20,000 cash bail.
