Warren County man accused of fondling 4 boys

A 19-year-old Wayne Twp. man has been accused of fondling four Waynesville-area boys in 2016, according to Warren County Prosecutor David Fornshell.

Cole A. Phillips was indicted on seven counts of gross sexual imposition, according to a list issued Monday by Fornshell’s office.

Between March 2016 and December 2016, Phillips is accused of fondling four sleeping male students from Waynesville High School after giving them alcohol at his home.

The boys, 14 to 16 years old would stay overnight at Phillips house in Wayne Twp., according to the prosecutor.

“The victim would awake to the defendant fondling them,” Fornshell said Monday.

The boys went to police recently after one of them learned others alleged similar acts by Phillips, Fornshell added.

Phillips was booked into the county jail Monday afternoon. He is scheduled for arraignment on Sept. 13.
