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.
