Man gets six years in molestation case




An Indianapolis man was sentenced to six years in prison after police said he molested an acquaintance in his home over a five-year period.

Steven Bryan Campbell, 54, 7111 Melanie Lane, pleaded guilty to one count of child molesting. He also was sentenced to two years probation, according to the Johnson County Prosecutor’s Office.

The incidents occurred while Campbell was living at a home in Franklin, according to a police report.

The girl told police that Campbell touched her and had sex with her in his home starting when she was 6 and that the abuse continued for about five years.

The victim, who is now an adult, reported the incidents to police in June 2011 after she heard that Campbell was accused of abusing other children.
