Steven R. Moulton, the son of embattled Morton junior high history teacher Michael Moulton, will be arraigned Thursday in Lewis County Superior Court for first-degree burglary.
Moulton, 21, was originally scheduled to be arraigned this past Wednesday.
Prosecutors charged Steven Moulton with first-degree burglary after a June 25 incident in which he allegedly broke into a public bathroom stall at Gust Backstrom City Park in Morton and assaulted an 8-year-old boy by punching him twice in the face.
Moulton was dragged off the boy by the boy’s grandfather and detained by a family friend until police arrived after the boy was heard screaming.
