The Jasper Police Department arrested Martin S. Garcia Dixon, 19, 1161 Terrace Ave., on Friday afternoon and charged him with three Level 3 felony counts of child molesting.
Police said the charges are the result of an investigation conducted by Jasper police, Indiana Child Protective Services and the Dubois County Prosecuting Attorney’s Office.
That investigation alleges that, on three separate occasions between Jan. 1 and Jan. 31, Garcia Dixon engaged in sexual intercourse with a 13-year-old female at his residence in Jasper.
Authorities said the investigation revealed Garcia Dixon knew the child was only 13 at the time the acts took place. The sexual intercourse was consensual between both parties, police said.
Garcia Dixon was booked into the Dubois County Security Center at 4:45 p.m.
