What can happen to someone that is being accused of touching a minor inappropriately?

Question Details:

I have a friend who is being accused of trying to touch a minor inappropriately. He was drinking at the time and does not have any recollection of this event. The minor's parents called the police. He has a clean record. Can you tell me if he has anything to worry about and what could happen to him. Does he need to speak with a criminal defense attoreny? In Butler County, PA.
