Lanesville Man Arrested for Child Molestation

Lanesville Man Arrested for Child Molestation


A Lanesville man was arrested late Tuesday on child molestation charges following an ISP investigation. 

In late December of 2021, the Indiana Department of Child Services (DCS) contacted Indiana State Police (ISP) Detective Chris Tucker after learning of possible child molestation allegations involving a pre-teen child at a Harrison County apartment.  

On December 20, 2021, Detective Tucker attended a forensic interview conducted at the Comfort House Child Advocacy Center in Corydon.  Detective Tucker was accompanied by a DCS caseworker as well as a representative from the Harrison County Prosecutor’s Office.  Following the interview, Detective Tucker continued his investigation which included interviews with

family members and Thirty-Eight-Year-Old, Bryan K. Benson who resided with the child in a Lanesville Apartment. 

As a result of the investigation, Detective Tucker requested an arrest warrant through the Harrison County Prosecutor’s Office.  That warrant was issued by the Superior court on Tuesday afternoon.

Tuesday evening, Trooper Nathan Newton and Harrison County Deputy Hunter Anderson arrested Bryan Benson at his Lanesville Apartment. 

Benson is charged with two counts of Child Molestation, each a Level Four Felony. 

Officers transported Benston to the Harrison County Jail without incident.
