Man Turns Himself In For Alleged Child Molesting



Huntingburg (NNDC) – A local man has turned himself for allegedly molesting a young girl about six years ago.

The Huntingburg Police Department says 63-year old Claude Taylor arrived at the department at about 12noon and confessed to several inappropriate incidents that Taylor says took place between him and the young female in Huntingburg.

Gogel says HPD and the Indiana Department of Child Services contacted the child’s family about the alleged incidents.

Taylor was taken into custody charged with Child Molesting.

Because the alleged incidents occurred six years ago, the charge is a Class A felony under Indiana’s former criminal code and sentencing guidelines.   The code was revised in 2014.

The Class A felony charge, if found guilty, carries a possible prison sentence of between 20 and 50 years.

He is currently being held on a $20,000 cash bond.
