Keith Thatcher was arrested on September 3rd after an Indiana State Police investigation revealed sexual misconduct involving a 15 year old girl that had been taking place since July of 2012. Authorities report Thatcher was a family acquaintance at the time of the alleged incident, which occurred in Michigan City. State Police say the family moved to Pulaski County in September of 2012, when Thatcher allegedly began molesting and had sexual misconduct with the victim's 8 year old sister, which continued until July of this year. Thatcher was served a warrant today by the Pulaski County Prosecutor's Office for one-count of felony child molestation and for one-count of sexual misconduct with a minor and he will eventually be extradited to Pulaski County.
