WALDO, Maine — A local man was charged this week with unlawful sexual touching.

Thomas A. Thomas II, 37, of Waldo, was arrested Thursday after a Waldo County Sheriff’s Office detective investigated an allegation that the man had inappropriately touched a 13-year-old girl, Chief Deputy Jeff Trafton said Friday.

Thomas was issued a summons on the Class D misdemeanor offense and also was charged with violating his conditions of release from a prior offense.

Correction: In a previous version of this story, a police official said that Thomas Thomas had admitted to unlawful sexual touching. Thomas instead “corroborated a lot of what the victim was saying” but did not actually admit to the unlawful sexual touching, Chief Deputy Jeff Trafton of the Waldo County Sheriff’s Office said Thursday.
