A Fishers man who is a youth counselor at his father's Indianapolis Eastside church was charged with having a sexual relationship with a 12-year-old girl who is a church member, police said Friday.
R.H. Duncan Jr., of Greater One Way Apostolic Church, 5840 E. 16th St., was charged with five felony counts of child molestation Wednesday, said Indianapolis Child Abuse Unit Detective Chris Lawrence.
Lawrence said Duncan, 41, is accused of having sex several times in different locations, including the church, with the girl from December 2003 to March 2004.
Duncan's father, Bishop R.H. Duncan, is church pastor.
The relationship was revealed when the girl told a friend and the friend told the victim's mother, police said.
Lawrence began his investigation in August, and the girl gave her account of the relationship.
An arrest warrant was issued for Duncan on Monday, and he turned himself in Wednesday. Lawrence said Duncan denies the charges.
He was released from the Marion County Jail after posting $50,000 bond.
Marion Superior Court jury on Wednesday acquitted a Fishers man of five counts of felony child molestation.
R.H. Duncan Jr., who was a counselor at his father's Eastside church, Greater One Way Apostolic Church, 5840 E.16th St., at the time the charges were brought, had been accused of having a sexual relationship with a 12-year-old girl who attended the church from December 2003 to March 2004.
