A man from Swanville remains in jail, accused of sex crimes against a 4-year-old girl. 21-year-old Scott Ritter is charged with unlawful sexual contact. A judge set his bail yesterday at $10,000 cash. Police say last week the girl told her parents that Ritter touched her inappropriately, so her parents called police. Court documents say that when police talked to Ritter, he admitted to the crime. He also reportedly told them about an incident with another young boy. Ritter is in the Two Bridges Regional Jail in Wiscasset.The Waldo County Deputy District Attorney says this is an on-going investigation and more charges could be filed against Ritter in the fall.
