JOHNSON COUNTY, Ind. — A Greenwood man is behind bars after being accused of molesting his step-granddaughter.

Sheriff’s deputies on Tuesday arrested 51-year-old Richard Huffman.

Court papers say Huffman’s stepdaughter went to police in September to report that he had molested her eight-year-old daughter.

The girl, who is in the third grade, told police Huffman touched her in May while she was sleeping with him on his bed. She said Huffman put his hand inside her pajama bottoms, touched her several times, and then told her not to tell anyone.

The girl told her mother about the abuse in September, court papers say.

Huffman faces one count of felony child molestation. He’s being held Wednesday in the Johnson Co. Jail on $40,000 bond.
