Man Facing Child Molesting Charges

(La Porte, IN) - A La Porte man could be facing significant time behind bars. Justin Bryan is charged with multiple counts of Level 1 felony Child Molesting and other sex-related offenses.


According to court documents, police were called last week by the mother of a girl who was 13 when the alleged activity with Bryan started.


The girl told investigators she and the 22-year-old Bryan were engaged in an “intimate” relationship since July. Naked pictures of the girl and Bryan, along with a video, were allegedly recovered from her cell phone.


Police said it appears all of the activity occurred at a residence in the City of La Porte.


Bryan, who was being held in the La Porte County Jail on a $100,000 bond, is looking at the possibility of up to 40 years on each of the three most serious counts.


La Porte Circuit Court Judge Tom Alevizos is presiding over the case.
