Cranston man charged with child molestation

CRANSTON, R.I. (WPRI) — The Statewide Grand Jury reported out a secret indictment charging Christopher Newsham with two counts of first degree child molestation.

It’s alleged that between 1991 and 1992, Newsham molested someone under the age of 14. Then, between 1995 and 1997, Newsham molested a second person under the age of 14.

A warrant was issued and on Friday, members of the Rhode Island State Police Major Crimes Unit arrested Newsham.  He was arraigned in Providence County Superior Court with bail set at $20,000 with surety.  Newsham was ordered to have no contact with the victims.  His next scheduled court appearance is on June 13, 2014 for a pre-trial conference.
