    Wednesday, at approximately 4:00 p.m., the United States Marshal’s Fugitive Task Force served a Putnam County  felony arrest warrant for sexual misconduct with a minor, on an employee of the United States Federal Prison in Terre Haute. Once in custody and off the grounds of the federal institution, the male was transferred to the custody of Indiana State Police troopers and detectives from the Putnamville Post. 


    David E. Nelson, age 32, of Cloverdale, Indiana was arrested for Sexual Misconduct with a Minor, Class B felony, and taken to the Vigo County Jail for incarceration without incident. There is no bond with this warrant.

    Indiana State Police Detective James Dungan began an investigation on August 2, 2010, at the request of the Putnam County Department of Child Services, into allegations that David E. Nelson had sexual contact with a 15 year old female friend. After the nearly month long investigation, it is alleged that on two separate occasions in June of 2010 and at two different Putnam County locations, Nelson and the female juvenile had sexual contact.

    Assisting during the investigation were the Putnam County Department of Child Services and the Putnam County Prosecutor’s Office.
