LYNN (CBS) – A 74-year-old Lynn man is accused of indecent assault on a child and other charges.
James Finn was arraigned in Lynn District Court on Monday, one day after police arrested him.
The incident happened at Heaths Court, an upscale apartment building where Finn is one of the trustees. On Sunday, police say he lured three children into his apartment with the promise of candy. He then allegedly showed the children nude photographs on his computer and exposed himself to an 8-year-old girl.
A parent contacted police saying she found her child in Finn’s apartment.
“I just think it’s something you don’t want to see any 8-year-old child have to go through,” said Lynn Police Lt. Mike Kmiec. “It’s certainly a traumatic event and certainly something we hope to help the family and the child get through.”
Finn is charged with indecent assault and battery on a child under 14, dissemination of harmful material/pornography to a minor and open and gross lewdness, police said.
