JOHNSON (WISH) - A Capital police officer was arrested after police say he kissed and touched an 11-year-old girl during a party.
Scott Litten, 43, of Anderson, was preliminarily charged with sexual battery. The charges were then upgraded to child molestation.
A release says around 7:53 a.m. Sunday, police responded to the 5700 block of South County Road 550 East in Johnson County because two adults wanted to report a child molestation incident from the previous night.
Police interviewed an 11-year-old girl who told police while in the swimming pool, she was kissed and touched inappropriately by Litten.
Police say Litten is on paid administrative leave. If a probable cause affidavit alleges that a felony crime was committed, he will be taken off paid leave.
Litten has been a Capital police officer since July 2002.
