Milford police arrested a Milford man on preliminary charges of felony child molestation Monday.
Milford Town Marshal Rich Miotto said his department began an investigation into alleged accounts of a child who had been molested by a family member on Oct. 18.
Child Protective Services brought the information to police and added that the incident possibly had been occurring since 2008. Milford officers interviewed the suspect, Kent Adam Flannery, 31, Milford, who allegedly admitted to his involvement.
