Hillsboro man faces child molesting charge

TERRE HAUTE — A  Hillsboro man faces a charge of child molesting in Vigo Superior Court 3 after being arrested Friday.

Michael DeWayne Brown, 39, appeared in court Wednesday morning where Judge David Bolk kept Brown’s bail at $30,000 with no 10 percent allowed.

Terre Haute Police investigated an allegation that Brown had inappropriately touched an elementary school-age child between Feb. 16, 2011 and July 12, 2012, resulting in a class-C felony charge of child molestation.

Brown was also charged with dissemination of material harmful to minors, a class-D felony, after the alleged victim told police that Brown had played pornographic videos that the child watched, sometime between Sept. 1, 2011 and Feb. 28, 2012.

Another court hearing for Brown is set for Monday.
