Darrien M. Dabney is being held in the Ada County Jail on three counts of lewd conduct after Boise police say he had illegal sexual contact with two kids under the age of 10 over the last month.
Police began their investigation after being contacted Jan. 18 by a third party. Police, who say the kids were known to the 18-year-old Dabney, put a safety plan in place immediately to ensure Dabney would not have any access to those children while they investigated the case.
Police say they developed evidence that the illegal sexual contact occurred in the Boise area over the last month and arrested Dabney Wednesday afternoon.
Dabney will make his initial court appearance Thursday afternoon.
The crime of lewd conduct is punishable by up to life in prison.
