A Fairfield man allegedly sexually assaulted a 13-year-old female victim that he lived with, police said.
The suspect that occurred in Shelton.
The investigation began in June when Fairfield Police Department received information from the Connecticut State Police Computer Crimes Unit about a tip regarding a juvenile involved in an online chat game with the suspect, according to Fairfield Police Deputy Chief Christopher Lyddy.
“The minor was the victim of sexual contact from a family member,” Lyddy said Monday at police headquarters.
After a lengthy investigation detectives were able to determine which computer that the conversation occurred on.
“We were able to locate a juvenile who disclosed inappropriate and unlawful contact with a family member,” Lyddy said.
The inappropriate activity had been going on for several years and began when the female victim was in fifth grade, according to Lyddy.
Fairfield police charged Kelly McGuire, 38, of Oakwood Drive, with first-degree sexual assault, fourth-degree sexual assault and risk of injury to a minor.
McGuire was issued a $200,000 bond and arraigned on August 17. The investigation, which began on June 21, has been closed.
