INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. (June 12, 2015)– A Capitol police officer has been sentenced for molesting a girl in a swimming pool.

Two adults said they saw Scott Litten inappropriately touch an 11-year-old girl.

Litten was initially arrested on a sexual battery charge, but those charges were upgraded to felony child molestation.

Deputies were called to a home in Johnson County on September 1, 2013. Detectives said two adults contacted them because they wanted to report an incident between Litten and the 11-year-old girl during a family gathering. Authorities said the girl told them Litten kissed and fondled her in the swimming pool on the previous night.

Litten knew the victim, but she does not live at the home.

Litten was sentenced to ten years. Six of those years will be spent behind bars, two will be spent on home detention and two more suspended.

Capitol police officers are tasked with providing the protection for elected officials, visiting VIPs, and state employees and visitors daily along with the enforcement of state laws. Capitol police officers’ main duty is the physical security of the buildings, properties, and personnel in and around the Government Center Complex.
