      Vermont man accused of sexually abusing two children in Jefferson County

      A Vermont man is accused of sexually abusing two children in Jefferson County back in 2005 and 2006.

      State Police say 41-year-old Kristopher M. Royce, of Springfield, Vermont was arrested Tuesday. The arrest stems from a year and a half long investigation.

      Police say Royce allegedly engaged in oral sexual conduct with a 6-year-old boy and an 8-year-old girl on multiple occasions between August of 2005 and February of 2006.

      The incidents allegedly happened at a residence at the Briarwood Apartments in the Town of Rutland, Jefferson County, New York.

      Police say Royce is charged with two counts of felony sexual conduct and two counts of endangering the welfare of a child.

      Royce was arrested on a Jefferson County Sealed Indictment Warrant of Arrest and remanded to the Jefferson County Public Safety Building. He was scheduled to be arraigned in Jefferson County Court on Wednesday.
