18-year-old male faces charges in sex case

FARGO - An 18-year-old male is accused in Cass County District Court of having sexual contact with a 13-year-old girl.

According to court documents:

A 13-year-old Fargo girl and a 12-year-old Moorhead girl met up with three males ages 15, 17 and 18 near Jefferson Elementary in Fargo on a night in July.

After spending time in various spots, the group, except for the 17-year-old male, ended up at the south Fargo home of the 18-year-old, identified in court papers as Augustine T. Addy.

The 13-year-old girl told authorities Addy had sexual contact with her and her 12-year-old friend.

The 12-year-old girl told police she took a shower with Addy but denied they had sexual contact.

She told police that she and her friend lied to the males about their ages because they knew the males were older and the girls wanted to hang out with them, court papers said.

During a court hearing Tuesday, Addy pleaded not guilty to a felony charge of gross sexual imposition and not guilty to a misdemeanor charge of delivering alcohol to prohibited persons.

According to online court records, Addy now lives in West Fargo.
