MICHIGAN CITY | A Michigan City man is accused of sexually assaulting a relative.
Larry Charlton Jr., 32, is charged in LaPorte Superior Court 1 with two Class A felony counts of child molesting and two counts of incest as level 4 felonies.
According to police, officers on Aug. 16 questioned Charlton and several witnesses after notified of a possible child molestation in the 400 block of Broadway Street.
The findings of investigation, including undisclosed evidence from the home, were later presented to a judge who ruled the case was strong enough for Charlton to face prosecution.
Anyone with information about the case is asked to contact Michigan City Police detective Kay Pliske at (219) 874-3221 ext 315.
Charlton could face anywhere from a 20 to 50 year sentence on each of the two more serious child molesting counts.
