PENDLETON — The technology director at the Indiana Department of Correction has been charged with molesting a child at his home on prison property.
Thomas Francum, who was suspended in August when the home in central Indiana was searched by investigators, is accused of molesting a child over a six-year period, state police said Wednesday.
Francum, 51, was released on bond after his arrest. His attorney's office declined to comment Thursday.
Francum lived in a leased home on the grounds of the Pendleton Correctional Facility in Madison County, about 25 miles (40 kilometers) northeast of Indianapolis.
