Man Admits To Molesting Boys At Party

By Denise Yost

COLUMBUS, Ohio -- A man admitted to molesting two young boys at a neighborhood block party.

Todd Gavorcik walked into a Franklin County courtroom, facing several felony charges involving the sexual abuse of children for molesting two boys at a Memorial Day party in Groveport in 2007, NBC 4's Lauren Diedrich reported.

"It was an annual block party and we've had it for several years and never had a problem," the victim's mother said.

Gavorcik was eventually arrested for the acts, but after posting bond, he offended again. In November, Dublin police arrested the then 25-year-old man in his car outside Griffith Thomas Elementary School with nude photos lying on the front seat.

"Then to know he's out there stalking other children, knowing that everybody is open to him preying upon them," the victim's mother said.

But the victim's family said they hope Gavorcik will not have a chance to prey upon any other children.

Gavorcik pleaded guilty to several charges on Thursday, including gross sexual imposition.

He will be sentenced in April.
