Prosecutors say three girls, ages 15, 14 and 5, told family services workers that Stoeser touched them inappropriately several years ago awhile they were being care for by Stoeser’s wife, who runs a daycare operation at home.

The West Central Tribune says Stoeser was arrested Monday after four additional counts of criminal sexual misconduct were filed.

Previously, Stoeser was accused of inappropriately touching a 5-year-old girl at the day care, who told her parents.
