FAIRBANKS — A former Fairbanks public school tutor has been found guilty of forcing a boy to have sex with him in 2010.
The Fairbanks Daily News-Miner reported that a Fairbanks jury on Tuesday convicted Claude Fowlkes III of three counts of sexual abuse of a minor.
Fowlkes in 2010 worked at Tanana Middle School. The boy was not a district student at the time.
Prosecutors say Fowlkes offered the victim $100 to help him move from his apartment and then forced him to have sex.
Fowlkes is also charged with seven counts of sexual abuse of a minor in connection to allegations made by a student at Hutchison High School accused him of abuse in 2014. A trial date for that case will be set later this month.
