Parents suing campground, police in molestation caseMarch 25, 2019
By The Associated Press
COLUMBUS — The parents of a boy allegedly molested by a reserve sheriff’s deputy at a southern Indiana campground are suing the campground, police and their reserve program.
The civil suit comes after 73-year-old Larry L. Scott of Hope was charged last July with child molestation and several other charges.
The (Columbus) Republic reports that the suit seeks damages and names as defendants Scott, Ceraland Park and Campground, the Bartholomew County Sheriff’s Department and its reserve program.
It alleges that Scott, who’s no longer a reserve deputy, molested the 12-year-old boy while volunteering as a night-time security supervisor at Ceraland.
The suit says Ceraland advertises that a county reserve deputy is on guard around the clock.
Ceraland’s attorney denies in court documents that Scott’s alleged criminal actions were linked to his job.
