A man who is awaiting trial on charges of molesting a 6-year-old boy in an elementary school bathroom now is facing new, unrelated charges.

Timothy David Paige, 20 of Eveleth, is accused of using forged checks last month while out on bail to purchase automobiles at dealerships in Hibbing and Hermantown. He is charged with two counts of felony check forgery. Each charge carries a maximum of 10 years in prison and a $20,000 fine, according to a news release from the Eveleth Police Department.

Paige is accused of having sexual contact with a boy inside Franklin Elementary School on April 4.

These aren't the first forgery charges against Paige. Last month, he was accused of forging documents from President Bush and the U.S. attorney general saying that the charges levied against Paige in the April incident should be dismissed.

Paige is currently in custody in the St. Louis County Jail.
