Man faces allegations of sex misconduct with teen

TERRE HAUTE — A Terre Haute man who was arrested Wednesday faces charges of sexual misconduct with a minor and public indecency.

John Dickson II, 36, appeared in Vigo Superior Court 1 after his arrest by Terre Haute Police, who reported that Dickson was found naked in a parked vehicle with a minor at 1:57 a.m.

An officer who responded to the area of 23rd and Locust streets on the report of males knocking over trash cans noticed that a white Ford Expedition was parked on Elm Street and looked out of place in the area. When the officer shined a light at the vehicle, a male head rose and then dropped out of sight. Officers approached the vehicle and found a naked male on top of a female younger than 16 inside the vehicle.

Dickson was arrested and booked into the Vigo County Jail at 2:41 a.m. Wednesday.

Dickson’s bail is set at $75,000 with no 10 percent allowed. He is to return to court Monday for filing of formal charges.
