(Ripley County, Ind.) – A Ripley County man has been charged with child molesting.

Versal Strunk, 31, was charged Wednesday in Ripley County with two counts of felony child molesting.

Strunk was arrested last week after a minor disclosed multiple acts of child molesting to a forensic interviewer at the Children’s Advocacy Center, but no charges were filed at the time.

A jury trial is scheduled for February 28, 2018. If convicted, Strunk faces 20-50 years in prison for each level 1 felony offense he is charged with.

Strunk is currently being detained on $50,000 cash bond.
