A 22-year-old Sharon man has admitted to having sexual relations with a 6-year-old boy, Sharon police said.

Scott J. Iliff, 490 Ormond Ave., was arraigned Wednesday by District Judge James E. McMahon on two counts each of rape of a child, involuntary deviant sexual intercourse and statutory sexual assault and three counts of indecent exposure.

Police said Iliff exposed himself to the boy on three separate occasions and had the boy perform oral sex on him on two occasions between May and July.

All of the incidents occurred while the boy was left in Iliff’s care, police said.

According to the arrest affidavit filed at McMahon’s Sharon office, two of the incidents occurred at a property on Fourth Avenue and one at an abandoned property on East State Street, neither of which is the boy’s home.

The youngster’s parents called police and Mercer County Children and Youth Services after the boy told them that Iliff wanted to have sex with him, the affidavit states.

Police said they called Iliff to the station Wednesday morning, where he admitted to assaulting the child.

Iliff was taken to Mercer County Jail after failing to post bond after his arraignment. McMahon set Iliff’s preliminary hearing for 9:30 a.m. Aug. 10.
