TH man admits to molesting charge

TERRE HAUTE — A Terre Haute man was arrested Thursday after confessing to a sex crime against a 4-year-old girl, officials said.

Levi W. Booker, 25, of Terre Haute was arrested in a Class-A felony charge of child molesting after contacting police and informing them that he had allegedly committed a sexual crime against a child under 12 years of age.

According to the Vigo County Sheriff’s Department, Booker gave a voluntary statement of the incident that allegedly occurred earlier this month.

“During this encounter Booker admitted to touching the child in a sexual manner with his hand for a second. As his interview continued Booker finally admitted that he had actually committed this act two times that day for approximately five minutes,” a press release from the sheriff’s department said.

Booker appeared in court Friday, police said, where the judge found probable cause for his arrest and set bond at $100,000, no 10-percent allowed. He will be back in court April 16 for the filing of formal charges, authorities said.
