Combs charged with child molestation

Wednesday, April 28, 2010

GREENCASTLE -- An Indianapolis man is lodged in the Putnam County Jail, charged with child molestation.

Kevin D. Combs, 41, is accused of molesting a girl who was 10 years old at the time of the alleged incident. Court documents do not indicate when the molestation is alleged to have taken place, but the alleged victim said it happened in Putnam County.

Combs has been charged with one count of Class A felony and one count of Class C felony child molesting. If convicted on both counts, he could be sentenced to up to 58 years in prison.

Judge Matthew Headley set Combs' bond at $50,000 cash only. A pretrial conference is set for June 17.

According to a probable cause affidavit, Indiana State Police Detective James T. Dungan interviewed the alleged victim on Jan. 21 at the Hendricks County Child Advocacy Center "due to that she disclosed Combs had sexual intercourse with her."

The girl told authorities the molestation happened when she was in the fourth grade.

"She stated that one evening she was asleep in her bedroom when Kevin Combs entered her room," the affidavit said. "She said Mr. Combs put his hand over her mouth and laid down on top of her."

Combs was interviewed at the Putnamville Post of the Indiana State Police on April 22. He was read his rights and agreed to talk to authorities, the affidavit said.

Combs' prior criminal history in Putnam County includes only traffic infractions. His previous address is listed as 712 Maple St., Greencastle.

he doesn't deserve to have a normal life outside of the prison walls. the judge should request the death penalty for people like this. this is disgusting and this man is a disgrace to all man kind. i pray that this little girl will have a normal childhood after what this creep has done to her

I find it odd that a person who kills someone gets a 20k bond and a child molester gets a 50k cash only bond.. But boy if your black and you get pulled over and they search your car and find something you get no bond..We as a society have different ideas of what is more important in life.I do not agree with people like that and think they should get high bonds or none what so ever. But I hope like heck they have more evidence than a he said she said.

Give the girl he molested a dull butter knife and let her take her time "trimming the neck and giblets".

Sick person to do something like that to a child - if he's convicted, I hope he gets the max.
