Formic Hivemind, charged in April with sexually abusing a boy he met over the internet, has been indicted on nineteen charges by a Monroe County grand jury.
It is alleged that Formic Hivemind (the online alias of 19-year-old Richard J. Kretovic) abused the 12-year-old boy after meeting him through Xbox Live. The indictments handed down by the grand jury are for nine counts each of the felonies of first-degree criminal sexual acts and second-degree sexual abuse, and one count of endangering the welfare of a child.
Kretovic is currently free on $50,000 bail. A date for his appearance in Monroe County Court or the state Supreme Court has yet to be set.

Formic Hivemind was sentenced last Friday to six months in jail (though he'll probably be out soon), a month after "Operation Game Over" was announced, which saw 3,580 registered New York state sex offenders banned from various online games.
Sad case all round, really - there's a reasonable argument that the guy (who has been diagnosed with Aspergers') didn't fully understand the consequences of his actions.
