BOISE — A Boise man has been booked into the Ada County Jail on ten counts of felony lewd conduct with a minor under the age of sixteen after police say he had illicit contact with two victims. And detectives believe there could possibly be other victims.

On Monday afternoon, Boise Police patrol officers began investigating multiple reports of sexual misconduct with a minor which allegedly occurred approximately one month ago, according to a Boise Police Department news release.

Reports indicated the suspect, identified as 20-year-old Michael Young, “on several occasions had lewd contact with a minor who was under the age of sixteen,” the release stated.

Investigators said the victim and Young know each other.

“Further evidence indicates the suspect had also had illicit contact with another minor, who was also known to him,” the release said.

Officers transported Young to the Ada County Jail, where he was booked on ten counts of felony lewd conduct with a minor under the age of sixteen.

Detectives are now looking for others who may have had contact with Young.

Anyone with any information about Young is asked to contact Crime Stoppers at 343-COPS (2677),, or leave a tip using the “P3 Tips” app for your mobile device.
