POSEY CO., Ind. (WFIE) - The Posey County Sheriff’s Office says a man has been arrested for child molesting, and it’s not the first time.

The sheriff says there was a complaint of sexual abuse in New Harmony on July 13.

He says the young victim was interviewed at Holly’s House, and she said a man had touched her in a sexual manner.

Officials say 67-year-old Delbert Wayne McKinney was arrested.

They say he was on parole and a lifetime sex offender after pleading guilty to child molesting in 2018.
