    August 16, 2011 No comments

    A Plainfield man was arrested Aug. 9 on four counts of child molestation, after police said a 26-year-old man told them he had been abused by the man for eight years.

    57 year old Melvin Luis Tabor Jr. was convicted last month on charges of possession of child pornography.

    The 26-year-old man stepped forward after Tabor’s conviction, according to a news release from the Brownsburg Police Department on Monday. The man said Tabor, who was a family friend, started to abuse him when he was 5, adding that the abuse lasted until he was 13 years old.

    Police investigated child pornography allegations against Tabor beginning in January 2010. He confessed to possession but not to producing it or any sort of sexual abuse.

    Tabor was found guilty of possession of child pornography in July and received a 70-month sentence in federal prison.

    Tabor is being held on $150,000 bond in the Hendricks County Jail.
