By BILL POWELL
JASPER — A 64-year-old Huntingburg man arrested last May after coming to police and confessing to crimes six years prior pleaded guilty Monday to a pair of charges related to child molesting.
Claude D. Taylor, of 212 E. 1st Ave., Huntingburg, came to the Huntingburg Police Department on May 12 to make his confession.
Police said he detailed incidents that took place in Huntingburg with a victim under the age of 14. After contacting the Department of Child Services and the family, Taylor was taken into custody. He has been lodged at the Dubois County Security Center.
Taylor had been scheduled to go to trial Feb. 28 but, on Monday, in a written plea agreement, he agreed in Dubois Circuit Court to plead guilty to a Class A felony and a Class B felony, both related to the child molesting.
He had been originally charged with 10 felony counts related to the molesting.
The court took the plea under advisement and the matter was assigned for an acceptance of plea and sentencing on March 13.
