Charges for Past Alleged Child Sex Acts

(La Porte County, IN) - A man is facing Child Molestation charges for acts that allegedly occurred in La Porte County a decade or so ago.


Authorities say that Joshua Schroeder was about 30 years old at the time of the crimes, allegedly done towards a female victim between the ages of five and eight at the time. Schroeder has been charged with molesting the girl on three occasions in the Michigan City area from 2012 to 2017, with a warrant issued for his arrest last week following an investigation.


Authorities became involved after the girl told her mother about the alleged activity.  Schroeder has not been taken into custody yet, with investigation indicating that he later moved to Tennessee, then Arizona, and now could be living in Texas.


He could face an up to 40-year sentence on the most serious of the three counts.
