    denies sex charge

    BANGOR, Maine — A Vermont caseworker has denied a charge of unlawful sexual contact with a girl after doing a follow-up visit with her in Maine.

    Police in Bangor say 26-year-old Jeffrey Parfitt of Middlebury is accused of doing an unnecessary and inappropriate exam on the girl after asking her father to leave. He was indicted by a grand jury on a felony charge of unlawful sexual contact.

    WABI-TV reports that Parfitt pleaded innocent Wednesday.

    The Vermont Department for Children and Families has placed Parfitt on administrative leave.
