Auburn man charged with forcing sexual conduct on 16-year-old


An Auburn man is accused of forcing a sexual act on a 16-year-old girl last month, Auburn Deputy Police Chief Roger Anthony said Thursday.

Jonathan James Moore, 21, is accused of using "physical force to force victim to perform sexual acts" on Jan. 2, Anthony said. Moore, 21, is accused of engaging in oral sexual conduct with a person younger than 17.

He was arrested Feb. 5 at his 22 Foote St. residence on a warrant issued Jan. 29. Moore established an online relationship with the victim, who doesn't reside in Auburn but would visit Moore at his home, Anthony said. 

Moore is charged with first-degree criminal sex act, a class B felony, and the class E felonies of third-degree criminal sex act and third-degree rape. He is also charged with the misdemeanor of endangering the welfare of a child.
