Additional count of molesting filed

Last month, Allen County Prosecutors accused 58-year-old Jack E. Harris of trying to fondle a teenager in her bed.

Monday, they slapped him with an additional felony charge and accused him of molesting a different girl when she was 3 years old.

Harris, of the 600 block of Lawton Place, is now facing a count of child molesting to go along with a count of child seduction prosecutors charged him with at the end of June.

In the child molesting case, detectives interviewed a girl Harris knew who told them he molested her beginning when she was 3 and until she was 5, according to Allen Superior Court documents.

The girl said Harris would come to her while she was in bed, and that the molestings happened within the last year, court documents said.

In the child seduction case, a 16-year-old girl who Harris knew said something similar – that he ventured into her room and touched her while she was in bed.
