KOKOMO, Ind. (WISH) — A Russiaville man faces felony charges in two counties after police say he had sex with a 14-year-old girl.

Chad Bowlby, 46, was arrested Saturday after a state police investigation, a Monday release said.

Indiana State Police believe Bowlby was working as a paramedic when he committed sexual acts with a 14-year-old girl in Howard and Cass counties during the last half of 2018.

Bowlby faces the following charges: 

  • Cass County: three counts of sexual misconduct with a minor
  • Howard County: sexual misconduct with a minor; child solicitation; and sexual battery 

Bowlby had been booked into the Howard County Jail but on Monday was listed as out of custody for an unknown reason, online records show.

He will appear in Howard County court on March 18 and in Cass County court on March 25.
