A family confession and a plea for forgiveness led to child molesting charges against a Crown Point man.
Eddy C. Dixon, 53, was charged Thursday with child molesting and incest. A warrant was issued last week for his arrest.
Dixon is accused of molesting and sexually abusing a girl from 2006 to 2008 at a Crown Point home, according to court records.
The incidents came to light in February after he confessed to family members during a trip to California. According to the affidavit, Dixon also confessed to molesting another girl in Chicago within the past couple of months. He asked the family for forgiveness.
