ANDERSON, Ind.—A capitol police officer with Indiana State Police was arrested after authorities said he molested a female juvenile in a swimming pool.
The Johnson County Sheriff’s Department said the alleged incident occurred during a party on Sept. 1 at a home located in the 5600 block of South 550 East. Authorities became aware of the situation after two adults reported they witnessed 43-year-old Scott Litten inappropriately touching an 11-year-old girl.
After interviewing the victim, authorities learned Litten allegedly kissed and inappropriately touched the girl. Litten was then initially arrested on a sexual battery charge. However, after further interviews, authorities said the girl admitted she was fondled by Litten while in the pool.
Charges against Litten were upgraded to child molesting, a Class A felony.
Litten has been with ISP since July of 2002. He is currently on paid administrative leave pending his court hearing.
