The Journal Gazette

A 40-year-old man is accused of having sexual contact with two girls numerous times.

Jim Craig Jr. was charged Tuesday in Allen Superior Court with attempted child molesting, three counts of child molesting and five counts of sexual misconduct with a minor.

In May 2012, the Indiana Department of Child Services received a report that Craig had sexually abused the girls, court documents stated.

According to court documents, Craig molested one girl between January and August 2011 when she was 14. He abused the other girl between August 2010 and August 2011 when she was at least 12.

In an interview with police, Craig denied touching either girl inappropriately.

Along with the Allen County charges, Craig faces counts of child molesting and sexual misconduct in Huntington County.

He was being held Tuesday in the Huntington County Jail in lieu of $30,000 bail.
