    Fair Haven man denies sex charge

    A Fair Haven man already facing criminal sex offense charges pleaded innocent Monday to three additional charges alleging sexual acts involving an 11-year-old girl.

    According to court records, Brandon Ellis, 18, answered to two felony charges of lewd and lascivious conduct and one felony charge of lewd and lascivious conduct with a child. If convicted, he faces up to 20 years in jail.

    In an affidavit, Vermont State Police Detective Michael Notte wrote that investigators with the Special Investigation Unit in Rutland, which handles sex crimes, received a report from a 13-year-old female who said when she was 11, Ellis exposed himself, wanted her to touch. The girl told police she did not say anything before because her family trusted Ellis and did not want to ruin it.

    Ellis was arrested in April. At the time of his arrest, Ellis was out on court-ordered conditions of release pending sex charges including sexual assault and lewd and lascivious conduct that police said occurred at the same time as the new charges.

    On Monday, Ellis was again released on conditions of release.
