Milford Town Marshal Rich Miotto said his department began an investigation into alleged accounts of a possible child that had been molested by a family member on Oct. 18. Child Protective Services brought the information to their agency and indicated the incidents had possibly been occurring since 2008.
Milford officers interviewed Flannery who they say did admit to his involvement.
According to a probable cause affidavit obtained by StaceyPageOnline.com, the mother of the 7-year-old female victim walked into her 11-year-old son’s room where she found the children with their pants down. The girl told her mother they were having “private time where you share special kisses” and said she also had private time with Flannery.
The court papers say Flannery admitted to approximately 20 incidents of sexual contact, including several graphic incidences, with the girl, dating back to 2008.
Milford officers filed charges with the Kosciusko County Prosecutor’s Office and arrested Flannery Monday afternoon on one count of felony child molestation with a victim less than 14 years old.
Flannery is currently being held in the Kosciusko County Jail on $20,000 bond.
