HOWARD COUNTY, Ind. (WISH) – Police say an Anderson man was arrested after he molested a 6-year-old girl.

24-Hour News 8’s news gathering partner the Kokomo Tribune reports Michael White was already incarcerated in the New Castle Correctional Facility for theft and driving under the influence.

The victim’s mother told police before his previous conviction, White inappropriately touched the girl and then told her not to tell anyone. That incident occurred in June.

Officials say if convicted, White could serve an additional eight years in prison.
