After an almost 10-month long investigation, Matthew David Smith, 25, is facing a charge of child seduction.
According to WLFI, court documents said police were called on May 9, 2019, with a report that a 16-year-old girl was being inappropriately touched by a man.
The girl told police that Smith stuck his hand under her shirt and fondled her while she was at school.

WLFI said that police took the girl's clothing and sent it to a lab for examination. Police were told that Smith's DNA was found on the clothing in January.
