Indiana State Police report that 28-year-old James D. Lane turned himself in last week on a warrant for a single charge of child molesting.

The investigation began in April when state troopers were asked to investigate the incident. The victim was interviewed by the Child Advocacy Center in Bloomington and she said that she had been touched inappropriately by Lane at a rural Jackson County home. The information was presented to the Jackson County Prosecutor’s office which issued an arrest warrant for Lane.

After turning himself in on July 8th, Lane was taken to the Jackson County Jail.
