CHICO, Calif. -

A paradise man accused of molesting a young girl was arraigned in Butte County Superior Court Wednesday.

65-year-old John Hall was arrested Monday at his home on Montna Drive in Paradise.

In all, he's being accused of 6 counts of lewd and lascivious acts with a child under 14, all felonies.

During his hearing Hall asked to be released on his own recognizance but that request was denied.

Paradise investigators say Hall molested a 4-year-old girl sometime in February, around the time the case was reported to Paradise police.

The alleged victim is not a relative but is known to Hall.
