A Franklin County man is in jail on $50,000 bail after he was arrested on suspicion of inappropriately touching two preteen girls while giving them rides home.
A judge found probable cause to hold Juan Garcia-Vasquez, 35, in the Franklin County jail on two counts of first-degree rape of a child. Prosecutors have until Friday to charge him.
Detectives say Garcia-Vasquez admitted to touching the girls several times between 2005 and 2012, according to a court document. Authorities were notified about the alleged abuse last week after a 12-year-old girl reported it.
Garcia was booked into jail Tuesday and appeared in court on Wednesday.
