Man twice accused of molesting children arrested

CORFU, N.Y. (WIVB) – A man twice accused of sex crimes involving children has again been charged with molesting a child.

Jackie Taft of Corfu was arrested Wednesday for second degree course of sexual conduct against a child. State Police and Steuben County Child Protective Services worked together to determine that the 62-year-old had sexual contact with a child less than 13-years-old at least 10 times over a year-long period.

Authorities say Taft molested the child during multiple visits with a family in Steuben County.

He is currently being held in the Steuben County Jail on $50,000 bail.

According to State Police, a Wyoming County grand jury indicted Taft in 1979 and 1984 on accusation of sex crimes committed against children less than 11-years-old.
