      I-Team: 19-year-old indicted for child molestation

      A grand jury released an indictment Thursday charging a teenager with molesting a 13-year-old girl.

      Chandler Cardente, 19, was charged with one count of child molestation.

      The case involves a 13-year-old girl from Coventry, too young to legally give consent.

      And other parents tell the NBC 10 I-Team she isn't the only victim.

      "Apparently my son is one of four, possibly five victims," said the father of a 2-year-old boy who was allegedly molested in West Warwick.

      NBC 10 obtained police reports in the boy's case, including a written statement Cardente gave detectives.

      "When I touched him I knew it was wrong, and I do need some help" the statement read.

      Because he had no prior criminal record, a judge granted bail after Cardente's first arrest back in June. He was ordered to have no contact with girls under 18.

      But police said he violated that rule less than three months later, angering the father in the earlier case.

      "I want justice brought not only to my son, but to other parents," the father said.
