(La Porte, IN) – A convicted child sex offender from La Porte is behind bars facing similar but more serious allegations.
Curtis Adams, 45, is charged in La Porte Circuit Court with two counts of Level 1 Felony Child Molesting and two counts of Level 3 Felony Child Seduction.
He was taken into custody on February 23rd at his home in the 600 block of Clay Street.
According to court documents, a 13-year old girl told investigators Adams molested her for three-years several times a week. One of the pieces of evidence in the case is the girl identifying a mark on the suspect’s body that police described as similar to what she described after Adams removed his clothing for an inspection.
During questioning, Curtis denied the allegations then told investigators “lock me up and throw away the key.” When asked why he would say such things if he’s innocent, police said Adams responded “it was better that way.”
According to court records, Adams was given a six-year prison sentence and four-years on probation in 2002 on a sexual misconduct with a minor conviction.
That charged was downgraded from child molesting under terms of a plea agreement.
Adams could now face up to 40-years on each of the two most serious counts filed against him.
