A Capitol Police Officer is on administrative leave after he was charged with molesting an eleven-year-old girl in Johnson County.
43-year-old Scott Litten of Anderson was originally charged with sexual battery, but the charges were upgraded to felony child molesting after investigators with the Department of Child Services spoke to the girl.
The Johnson County Sheriff's office says the girl told detectives she was kissed and fondled by Litten on Sunday at a home in the 5600 block of South 550 East. Police haven't said whether Litten and the girl are related.
Captain Dave Bursten with Indiana State Police says Litten will remain on leave with pay pending the outcome of the case. Bursten says Litten has been with Capitol Police since July 2002.
