62-year-old accused of molesting girl, 4

A 62-year-old man has admitted to molesting a 4-year-old girl in Fort Wayne, according to court papers filed Wednesday.

Ronnie Crissey fondled her and had her touch him sexually on Sept. 10, court papers stated.

The same day, Crissey left a phone message for the girl’s mother apologizing for his actions.

Later, in an interview with police, he admitted to molesting the girl, court papers said.

Crissey, of Grand Rapids, Mich., was charged Wednesday in Allen Superior Court with two counts of child molesting. He was being held at the Allen County Jail in lieu of $35,000 bail.
