A 64-year-old Atco man was arrested and charged yesterday with criminal sexual contact and endangering the welfare of a child.

Charles Lessig, a self-employed piano teacher, is accused of molesting a 13-year-old student while giving him lessons in the boy's Mount Laurel home, said Burlington County Prosecutor Robert Bernardi and Mount Laurel Police Chief Joseph Lehmann Jr.

An investigation revealed that Lessig abused the boy between March and May 22 in the child's home, where they were not alone, authorities said. Judge Gregory McCloskey set bail at $30,000.
