BANGOR, Maine -

A Vermont Department of Children and Families caseworker has been indicted by Maine authorities for an alleged sex crime against a child.

Police say last month, Jeffrey Parfitt, 26, of Middlebury, went to Bangor, Maine, to conduct a follow-up visit with a child who moved there. Police say Parfitt asked the girl's father to leave the room and allegedly performed an unnecessary and inappropriate exam.

Parfitt was indicted by a grand jury Wednesday for felony unlawful sexual contact. He's been placed on administrative leave. DCF says it's checking on the safety of other children Parfitt has worked with.
