Police: 2 Men Molested Same 9-Year-Old Child

Men Arrested On Child Molestation Charges

Two men were arrested Thursday on child molestation charges involving the same 9-year-old boy, Indiana State Police said.

Paul Stanton, 55, and Jerry Stanton, 45, both of Jackson County, were taken into custody without incident, ISP Sgt. Noel Houze said.

An investigation of the men began in January, when information that the Jackson County Division of Family Services had gathered was forwarded to police.

"It was suspected a 9-year-old male was a possible victim of abuse by two family members," Houze said.

Paul Stanton faces two child molesting charges, a Class C felony and a Class A felony. Jerry Stanton was charged with one count of child molesting, a Class A felony.
