— A former Wake County YMCA worker charged two weeks ago in an Internet sex sting was expected to face an additional sex-related charge, police said.

Apex police said they will charge Kim Sunsik Kelly with sexual battery. Investigators said a 16-year-old YMCA counselor was touched inappropriately last year.

Kelly, 36, of 306 Rutherglen Drive, worked at the Southwest Wake YMCA in Apex for less than two months, officials said.

He was arrested in Asheville two weeks ago in an undercover investigation by the national Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force. Authorities said he initiated a conversation online with an investigator posing as a child in which sexual acts were mentioned.
