According to People19-year-old Christopher Faulhaber of Ohio has been charged with two counts of gross sexual imposition and three counts of endangering children. 

Faulhaber was a camp counselor at Skyview Ranch, a Christian summer camp.

Per court records, Faulhaber allegedly “admitted to having [the] victims in his bed and touching their backs and legs” when asked by police. “[Faulhaber] stated he could have accidentally touched their [private areas]. All the boys felt scared and could not leave his control.”

Faulhaber was fired from his job as a camp counselor. He has not entered a plea to the charges and is free on $25,000 bond.

He will return to court next week for a hearing.
