A former New Castle resident was arrested early Friday after a two-year investigation into alleged child molesting. Loring Kevin Carender, 51, of Muncie, posted bond Friday and was released from Henry County Jail shortly after his booking on charges of child molestation and dissemination of material harmful to minors. Carender is accused of having inappropriate sexual conduct with a teenager while staying with his girlfriend in New Castle.
According to the New Castle Police Department, Carender and the teenager’s mother started a relationship in 2011. Police say they had the teen videotape their sexual encounters.
Carender was also accused of forcing the teen to touch him in a sexual manner and allegedly engaged in intercourse with the teenager while the mother held the child down.
