An elderly Kingman man charged with sex offenses involving a 12-year-old neighbor entered a plea agreement on Friday, July 28. Charles Napolitano, 70, pled guilty to two counts of sexual abuse.

Kingman police said the victim was the subject of grooming behavior last summer that escalated into improper hugging and breast groping.

Napolitano avoids prison but can be given up to a year in jail when sentenced September 5. He will also be placed on probation for up to ten years and ordered to register as a sex offender.
