Both warrants cited all of 2015 and through mid-April for when the incidents happened.
Police said both girls knew McGettigan before the alleged offenses began. Because the charges are based on the girls’ being under certain ages, their exact ages were not disclosed.
McGettigan was being held in lieu of $900,000 bail for a Thursday court appearance.
