A criminal complaint said Wolters rubbed lotion on a child's body and genitals at his previous home in Brinsmade, N.D., during 2008. The child allegedly screamed and ran upstairs after Wolters touched her, the complaint said. The complaint said he rubbed lotion over another child's stomach and upper inner thighs, though she hit his hands away as he tried to touch her genitals.

Both children were less than 15 years old at the time, the complaint said.
