LEE, N.Y. – A town of Lee man was arrested for allegedly having an inappropriate conversation with a child.

The Oneida County Sheriff’s Office says 31-year-old Kenneth Tennant III was charged with endangering the welfare of a child and was arrested Tuesday.

An order of protection was issued for the victim, and the Oneida County Child Advocacy Center is offering counseling to the girl.
