FORCIBLE TOUCHING - EDWARDS — Canton-based state police on Monday charged Carl C. Oatman, 44, of 1717 Route 58, with a misdemeanor count of forcible touching.

Troopers allege that on March 10 while traveling in a vehicle in the town of Russell, Oatman touched the breast of a woman after she refused to have sex with him.

Oatman, a Level 2 sex offender who is on parole for first-degree rape and sodomy after his Aug. 21, 2003 convictions, was arrested at 1:55 p.m. at his residence following an investigation into the allegations.

He was arraigned in Hermon Town Court and sent to the St. Lawrence County Correctional Facility with bail set at $4,500 cash or $10,000 bond. The state Department of Corrections and Community Reelase revoked his parole and an order of protection was issued in favor of the alleged victim.

He is scheduled to reappear in Russell Town Court.
