A Bristol man is facing charges of child molesting after being accused of molesting a young female relative, according to our reporting partners at the Elkhart Truth.
According to police documents, a woman told Elkhart County sheriffs in July 2014 that a relative, 67-year-old Steven Bonine, had molested her daughter.
The girl said that Bonine touched her genitals and her chest on numerous occasions beginning when she was 6-year-old.
Bonine was arrested March 14 on three counts of child molesting and was booked into the Elkhart County Jail.
If convicted he could face up to 70 years in jail.
