A Burnsville man is charged with a felony after he allegedly gave alcohol to an 11-year-old girl and sexually touched her.

Thirty-two-year-old Joseph Felton is charged with fourth-degree criminal sexual conduct. According to a criminal complaint, he was drinking at his home late in the evening on April 5 and into the morning hours of April 6. He admitted to letting the girl sip from his glass of alcohol.

The girl said he touched her bare breasts and buttocks and kissed her on the neck and lips. The child reported the assault to her parents, who called police.

Felton said he remembered "99 percent" of the night but does not remember making sexual contact with the girl.
