Clarksburg man charged with sexual abuse

FAIRMONT — A Clarksburg man has been charged with sexual abuse.

Michael Boros, 26, was arrested on June 12 and charged with sexual abuse by guardian.

According to the criminal complaint, Boros became the babysitter of a 15-year-old female. Boros was introduced to the family of the victim by the boyfriend of the victim’s mother.

Boros and the victim had sexual intercourse about 20 times, the complaint said. The victim stated in an interview that she cared deeply for Boros and that the sexual relationship was mutual.

A friend of the victim was notified of the relationship. According to the criminal complaint, the friend notified the mother of the victim.

The mother notified the Marion County Sheriff’s Department, said the complaint. Boros denied wrongdoing but did not contact the investigating officer.

The victim had sisters present in the home, though the investigation concluded that nothing had happened to them.

If convicted, Boros faces between five and 15 years  in a correctional facility and/or fine between $1,000 and $10,000.

Ted Jackson Nutter, 39, of Summersville, was also arrested on June 12 and charged with operating or attempting to operate a clandestine drug lab.

According to the criminal complaint, a Marion County Sheriff’s deputy was informed of a white male at a hotel who had been asking people to purchase cold medicine which he would use to make a substance that would make individuals high.

The deputy arrived at the hotel room; Nutter was present in the room and gave the deputy a false name and false date of birth, the criminal complaint said. The deputy noticed an item in the room that is used with controlled substance.

After obtaining and serving a search warrant, the deputy and other deputies found various items consistent with cooking meth, the complaint said. Nutter told the deputy that he used the “red p” method to cook methamphetamines.

According to the criminal complaint, the “red p” method is using phosphorus to cook methamphetamine. Nutter was found to have a coffee filter with what appeared to be phosphorus from the heads of matches in his pocket.

If convicted, Nutter faces between two and 10 years in prison and a fine between $5,000 and $25,000.
