Police have charged William Lewis Stull of Georgetown with luring a child (2 counts), invitation to sexual touching, sexual assault and sexual interference.

According to police, Stull first met the victim on the social media application called “Omegle” and provided her with his contact name for another social media application called “KIK” where they began exchanging messages.
Stull then arranged to meet with the victim and sexually assaulted her, according to police.

Sexual assault is any touching of another person without their consent where the touching is of a sexual nature, or where the sexual integrity of the victim is violated. A sexual assault can range from unwanted touching to sexual assault involving penetration.
Police are reminding the public that there is no statute of limitation when it comes to reporting a sexual assault. This means that no matter how long ago the sexual assault happened, you can still report it to the police for investigation.
