Registered sex offender charged with felony battery

KOOSKIA — A convicted sex offender has been charged with a felony alleging inappropriate physical contact with an 11-year-old girl.

Scott W. Forsman, 39, of Kooskia, faces a May 13 pretrial/scheduling conference hearing on a charge of battery with intent to commit a serious felony.

On March 30 at a Kooskia residence, according to court records, Forsman is alleged to have put his hand around the minor female’s thigh and also pulled on her shirt in order to view her breasts. Idaho County Sheriff’s Deputy Keith Olsen investigated the case.

Forsman is a registered sex offender following his felony conviction in 2000 on an Idaho County charge of lewd and lascivious conduct with a 12-year-old female in Elk City. He was discharged from probation in this case in 2011.
