BUTTE COUNTY, Calif. - A Chico man was arraigned on Monday for multiple child molest charges, according to the Butte County District Attorney’s Office.
32-year-old Adrian Fuller was arrested on Friday for a culmination of a nearly two-year investigation that Fuller molested the daughter of his former girlfriend, according to District Attorney Mike Ramsey.
The arraignment will continue Wednesday for an entry of a plea and appearance of counsel, according to the DA’s office.
The 13-year-old daughter told a friend about the molests to a friend who then told a school counselor. The school counselor then told authorities, the DA’s office said.
The teenager’s mother was notified and she and her daughter immediately left Fuller and the state.
Fuller is facing multiple counties of felony child molest and is facing 36 years in state prison. He is in the Butte County Jail on a $790,000 bail.
