Madison Man Accused Of Child Molesting

The charge comes after a prior arrest for battery and neglect of a dependent.

(Madison, Ind.) - A Madison man is charged with child molesting. 

In February, Indiana State Police arrested Christian Chase, 25, on charges of Battery with Bodily Injury to a Minor and Neglect of a Dependent. 

The charges stemmed from a nine month investigation into allegations that Chase battered a child that was under his care in March and April of 2018. 

Chase was sentenced to four years in prison. 

Since then, detectives obtained information that Chase allegedly molested a child in his care during the same tiem frame of the original offenses. 

Indiana State Police detectives served an arrest warrant on Friday at the Plainfield Correctional Facility, where Chase was incarcerated. He will remain jailed pending his initial appearance in Jefferson County Circuit Court on one count of Child Molesting (Level 1 Felony).
