Greenwood Ice Cream Shop Reopens After Former Owner's Arrest For Child Porn

Mrs. Curl Ice Cream said John Cassin no longer owns the shop after he was arrested last Friday.

GREENWOOD, Ind. -- A Greenwood ice cream shop reopened Sunday after its former owner's arrest.

Mrs. Curl Ice Cream, a staple in the Greenwood community for many years, was closed for business after John Cassin's Friday arrest on charges of possession of child pornography.

Cassin no longer owns Mrs. Curl, according to a statement released by the shop on Saturday.

In a Facebook post that has since been deleted, Mrs. Curl released this statement:

We would like to address the public regarding the recent arrest of John Cassin. We sincerely apologize and acknowledge everyone's concerns. Our priority is the welfare of our employees and customers. Our employees have expressed that they would like to continue working. Mrs. Curl has transitioned to new ownership as of January 2019 due to John's age and pending retirement. Due to pending allegations, his partners wish to reopen the business as of Sunday April 14 and keep providing jobs to our employees and great ice cream and food that you've grown to love. Effective immediately, Mr. Cassin will be stepping aside from his role at Mrs. Curl.

People on both sides of the conversation have similar hopes for the future of the company.

"Mrs. Curls, obviously the ownership would probably change, considering," said Rusch. "But it is a staple in Greenwood and I think there is a lot the business does good for the community, you know, even despite the actions of you know, like I said, a single individual."
