OROFINO, ID - A 34-year-old registered sex offender was arrested last week for allegedly having inappropriate contact with a 17-year-old girl. Christopher Gugger, who owns and works at a restaurant in the 12000 block of US 12 in Orofino, is charged with Sexual Battery - Soliciting the Participation of a Minor ages 16 to 17 Years of Age.
As a registered sex offender, Gugger is required to stay at least 500 feet away from any school. A Probable Cause Affidavit says that there is a pre-school/daycare next door to "The Jig," which is 275.6 feet away. Law enforcement officials say they will be "looking into this issue," the document says. The daycare business was reportedly unaware of Gugger's sex offender status.
