Man, 66, charged with indecency with a child by sexual contact

Local News

Clay County Sheriff Kenny Lemons said a man was arrested on Jan. 12 on an outstanding warrant for indecency with a child by sexual contact.

Lemons said a 6-year-old victim told family members of the alleged sexual abuse, and during a forensic interview said the child named Steve Robert Dietrich, 66, as “the person who had inappropriately touched her, exposed himself to her, and told her to keep it a ‘secret.'”

After an intensive and thorough investigation supported the victim’s statement and conflicted with the statement(s) provided by Dietrich, Lemons said he was arrested and charged.

Dietrich is out on a $100,000 bond
