The state police have arrested a Marion County man accused of falsely reporting multiple child abuse incidents.

Fred Spadafore, 52, is charged with three counts of falsely reporting an emergency incident and two counts of false information to a trooper.

Spadafore made multiple child abuse reports through a child abuse hotline, according to authorities.

Spadafore said there was a 14-year-old girl who was being sexually abused by her adoptive parents in Rivesville, according to investigators.

Sergeant Adam Scott said authorities and Child Protective Services went to Rivesville to find the family in question.

Scott said they learned that the child abuse claims were false. He said Spadafore admitted to calling the hotline so he could so he could sexually pleasure himself.

Spadafore is in the North Central Regional Jail awaiting arraignment.

To report a child abuse claim, call Sergeant Scott at 304-367-2701.
