Idaho man molested 5-year-old, prosecutors say

IDAHO FALLS, Idaho (AP) Prosecutors in eastern Idaho have charged an Idaho Falls man with two counts of lewd conduct because they say he molested a 5-year-old child.

Thirty-six-year-old Steven Bodkin also has a warrant for his arrest out of Nueces County, Texas, where he faces two felony counts of indecency with a child.

Bonneville County deputy prosecuting attorney Daniel Clark told the Post Register that Bodkin will likely be extradited to Texas after prosecution concludes in Idaho.

If convicted in Idaho, Bodkin faces up to life in prison for each count.
