Transgender man indicted on sex crimes against minor

LUCEDALE, MS (AP) - A George County grand jury has indicted a transgender man on assault charges and sex crimes against a transgender minor.
           
The Sun Herald reports
Krishna "Kris" Maroney, 24, was indicted on eight counts of sexual battery, two counts of touching of a child for lustful purposes and two counts of aggravated domestic violence.
           
Maroney has pleaded not guilty. His lawyer declines comment.
           
The indictment states the victim had been in a relationship with Maroney, but was younger than 16.
           
Maroney is accused of engaging in sex acts with the victim eight times and sexually touching the minor at least twice.

All crimes allegedly occurred in late 2012.
