According to a criminal complaint, a known three-year-old victim participated in a forensic interview at Western PA Cares for Kids on August 5, 2020. During the interview, the victim disclosed that she had been indecently assaulted while being supervised at a residence in Clarion Township.

The victim stated she was sleeping in a bedroom with two other juvenile girls. Adams entered the room and touched her genitals, over the clothing, with his hand. The victim said that Adams left when another known juvenile in the room woke up and saw him, the complaint states.

The victim utilized an anatomically correct doll to demonstrate Adam’s actions, the complaint notes.

A known juvenile also participated in a forensic interview. She reported seeing Adams leave the bedroom and also being told by the victim that Adams had touched her genital area.

The complaint states Adams had access to the victim intermittently on or around the timespan of July 11 through July 19, 2020.
