An Eau Claire man will be in court in September on charges of sexually assaulting a nine year old girl.
James Kittleson is accused of assaulting the girl at his home in July. She said it started when he suggested a hug and a kiss before she went to bed, then offered her a massage.
She also said the next day Kittleson told her not to tell her parents, or he might get in trouble. The girl said she was uneasy because her mother had taught her that she shouldn’t trust a person who tells her not to tell anyone.
