Dehart, who knew the woman, was reportedly seen on surveillance video inappropriately touching the woman who is “cognitively delayed,” according to the criminal complaint. Later when questioned, the woman said Dehart has been sexually touching her for the last year.

Dehart told police that he knows the woman is “not a mentally cognitive adult” and thinks that the woman misinterpreted a hug that he gave her “because the hug may have lasted too long and sometimes his hugs may cause his hands to go lower than a normal hug.”
