    Police are seeking a registered sex offender living in Clarendon who failed to come to court Monday to answer to a new criminal offense involving a 14-year-old girl.

    Charles L. Baker IV was scheduled to appear in Rutland criminal court Monday to answer to a felony charge of lewd and lascivious conduct. When he didn’t appear, Judge Theresa DiMauro ordered a warrant for his arrest with bail set at $10,000.

    Baker, 40, was convicted in 2000 of two felony counts of sexual assault involving a victim under the age of 16 and a felony count of lewd and lascivious conduct with a child. Baker was jailed for two years and remains on probation for those offenses.

    In the new charge, a 14-year-old girl told investigators with the Rutland Unit for Special Investigators, which handles sex assault cases, that Baker had touched her inappropriately.
