Jefferson County-Yesterday, Indiana State Police Detectives arrested a Commiskey man on two charges of sexual misconduct with a minor after a four month investigation.

The investigation by Detective Chris Howell began in December 2017 when Indiana State Police Detectives were contacted after allegations of sexual misconduct were reported.  The investigation determined that between August 2017 and December 2017, William M. Hardin, age 43, Commiskey, Indiana, allegedly sexually abused a female juvenile while she was 14 and 15 years old at Hardin’s residence near Commiskey in Jefferson County, Indiana.

At the conclusion of the investigation, the case was presented to the Jefferson County Prosecutor’s Office.  As a result, the Jefferson County Circuit Court issued an arrest warrant on April 9th for William Hardin on one charge of sexual misconduct with a minor, level 4 felony, and one count of sexual misconduct with a minor, level 5 felony.

Hardin was arrested around noon yesterday without incident.  He was transported to the Jefferson County Jail where he was incarcerated, pending his initial court appearance in the Jefferson County Circuit Court.

Over 24 days, the Scott County Sheriff’s Office and Scottsburg City Police issued 68 citations and made 2 arrests during St. Patrick’s Day, college Spring Break and the first rounds of NCAA Tournament.

In 2017, the weekend beginning St. Patrick’s Day had the highest number crashes involving impaired drivers. Federal traffic safety funds administered by the Indiana Criminal Justice Institute (ICJI) supported random patrols, saturation patrols and sobriety checkpoints for more than 230 law-enforcement agencies across the state.

“Enforcement of traffic laws is focused on preventing crashes, injuries and deaths in our community,” said local law enforcement leaders. “As we look ahead to celebrating Easter, the Final Four and the rest of Spring Break, make sure your plans include a sober driver and extra stopping distance.”

In every state, it is illegal to drive with a blood alcohol concentration of .08 or higher. In Indiana, drivers under 21 with a BAC of .02 are subject to fines and a license suspension for up to 1 year.

The top causes of all Indiana traffic crashes are drivers following too closely and failing to yield the right of way. Aggressive, distracted and impaired driving reduce reaction times to unexpected slowed traffic, bicycles and pedestrians.

New impaired-driving equipment

Last year, ICJI and the National Highway Transportation Safety Administration (NHTSA) purchased 1,759 new portable breath tests for Indiana law-enforcement agencies. An additional 836 devices are being purchased this year.

But unlike alcohol, there is no quick field test for the legal and illegal drugs that can impair drivers. ICJI and NHTSA are issuing Android tablets and apps to assist 185 highly-trained police officers in the recognition and enforcement of drug-impaired driving.

If you’re taking a new drug or higher dose, talk with your doctor or don’t drive until you know how it affects you. Even over-the-counter medication such as cold medicine or sleep aids may cause impairment, especially when combined with alcohol or a second drug.

The vehicle, a maroon Chrysler 200, was stolen from a car lot in Indianapolis when it was not returned during a test drive.
