[ISP] Man Arrested for Child Molestation
Start Date: 1/26/2012
End Date: 1/26/2012
Entry Description

Putnam County—Indiana State Police detectives from the Criminal Investigation Division at the Putnamville Post have arrested a Coatesville man on multiple felony sexual allegations involving a minor.

David L. Williams, age 37, of Coatesville, IN. was arrested this evening at the Indiana State Police Post in Putnamville and incarcerated in the Putnam County Jail. Williams was arrested on preliminary charges of Child Molestation, A felony, one count; Rape, B felony, one count; and Incest, B felony, one count. The investigation concerning this victim continues and more charges are possible.

The investigation began on January 25, 2012, when the victim’s mother contacted the Putnam County Child Protective Services and made child molestation accusations against David L. Williams. Further investigation led investigators to believe that on multiple occasions over the last three years, David L. Williams engaged in various sex acts with an eight year old female family member at his rural Coatesville home.

State police investigators served a search warrant at the rural Coatesville home this afternoon and several items of evidence believed to be related to the crime(s) were seized.

The case was investigated by ISP Detective Deanna Jones. Assisting were ISP Detectives Sergeant Troy Stanton, Sam Stearley, Jim Dungan, and Chris Carter, ISP Crime Scene Investigators Sergeant Kris Fitzgerald and Sergeant Jim Cody, Putnam County Sheriff’s Office, Putnam County Prosecutor’s Office and the Putnam County Department of Child Protective Services.

Under the Law, criminal charges are merely accusations and the defendant is presumed innocent unless and until proven guilty.
