A 9-year-old Connecticut girl was arrested on sex charges, perhaps the youngest suspect ever to face such charges in Manchester, local police say. The elementary school student was charged with four-degree sexual assault, a misdemeanor, and three counts of risk of injury to a minor, a felony, said Manchester police Sgt. John Maston. If convicted on all charges, the girl, who was not identified by police, could face up to four years at a state juvenile facility.
