A 17-year-old Dutchess teen has been charged with sexually assaulting a child on Tuesday in the Town of Clinton, according to the Dutchess County Sheriff’s Office.
Devin Huber, who resides in Clinton, was arrested after deputies received a report around 4:30 p.m. Tuesday of a child being sexually assaulted, said Capt. John Watterson.
Further investigation by the Sheriff’s Office Detective Bureau led to the arrest of Huber a short time later, and he is accused of forcibly subjecting the child to sexual contact earlier during the day, Watterson said.
The investigation is continuing, and if anyone has information about this case or similar incidents potentially involving Huber are urged to contact the Sheriff’s Office Detective Bureau at 845-486-3820 and ask for Detective Brenner. Anyone with information may also contact the Sheriff’s Office tip line by phone at 845- 605-2583 or via email at firstname.lastname@example.org . All information will be kept confidential.
Huber has been charged with felony first-degree sexual abuse and was released after posting $1,000 cash bail. He is scheduled to appear in court on July 6.
