A 28-year-old man was arrested in Paradise back on Jan. 2 after allegations he molested a 13-year-old girl, Butte County Sheriff’s office says.

Butte County Sheriffs were told that William Prinz molested a girl who was 13 at the time. The alleged molestation happened in December, in the small community of Magalia.

An investigation followed, with an arrest warrant eventually issued for Prinz.

Prinz was then arrested in Paradise. He now faces three counts of lewd acts with a minor.
