1 held in molestation case


A Milford man was behind bars Tuesday, accused of child molestation.

The investigation began Oct. 18 after allegations were made to Child Protective Services that the molestation might have begun several years ago, Milford Town Marshal Rich Miotto said in a statement.

Kent Adam Flannery, 31, was arrested Monday afternoon on one count of felony child molestation with a victim younger than 14, the statement said. Flannery was being held in the Kosciusko County Jail on $20,000 bond.

The age and gender of the child who is the focus of the allegations have not been released.
