KENNEWICK, Wash. — A Bonner’s Ferry, Idaho, man is accused of groping cheerleaders at high school football games in the Tri-Cities.

Authorities says 41-year-old Jeffrey Paul Gravelle was at two Hanford High School games last month and grabbed or touched three cheerleaders under their skirts.

Tri-City Herald reports he’s also suspected of loitering outside the girl’s locker room during a basketball game in February.

Gravelle pleaded not guilty in Benton County Superior Court to voyeurism and assault with sexual motivation. He’s held in the Benton County Jail on $50,000 bail with trial set for Nov. 13.
