A French Lick man was arrested Friday night following an investigation involving a minor.
Indiana State Police Detective Jarrod Lents launched a criminal investigation Sept. 29 after receiving information from the Dubois County Department of Child Services concerning allegations of sexual misconduct with a minor.
The investigation revealed that Derek T. Breitwieser, 30, French Lick, had allegedly engaged in sexual misconduct with a minor under the age of 16 and sexual battery. This allegation took place in Dubois County.
After reviewing the investigation, the Dubois County prosecutor asked for a warrant to be issued for Breitwieser's arrest. A warrant was issued by the Dubois court on Oct. 16.

He faces two counts of sexual misconduct with a minor, a Level 5 felony, and two counts of sexual battery, a Level 6 felony.
