ROCHESTER, N.Y. (WIVB) - A Rochester man who worked with youth has been accused of sexually abusing a 15-year-old resident of a children's facility.
Twenty-nine-year-old Matthew King has been charged by State Police with five counts of third degree criminal sexual act and four counts of endangering the welfare of a child. According to NYS Penal code, third degree criminal sexual act is used when the suspect has had oral or anal sexual contact with a victim under the age of 17.
Troopers say the incident occurred multiple times throughout this year with the 15-year-old as King worked in his capacity as a "youth care professional" at Hillside Children's Center in Rochester.
Hillside provides children with emotional or mental health issues with comprehensive care. They have facilities throughout western New York.
Anyone with information on any suspicious behavior of this nature involving King is asked to contact State Police in Rochester.
