Alleged Child Molester Facing More Counts

December 20, 2006

Glens Falls, N.Y. Another child has come forward with sexual abuse allegations against a Warren County probation officer who was formerly a social services caseworker.

Thirty-year-old Bradford Overton now faces additional charges including first-degree sexual abuse and coercion.

A 9-year-old boy says Overton abused him in late 2004 or early 2005 while Overton was working as a county child protective services caseworker. Police say he threatened to put the boy in foster care if he reported the abuse.

Earlier this month Overton was charged molesting two other boys ages 15 and 16.

Overton is also a youth minister at New Hope Community Church in Glens Falls. He's on administrative leave from the probation department and awaiting arraignment.
