TIPPECANOE COUNTY, Ind. (WLFI)- A twice-convicted child molester from Lafayette faces new allegations.

53-year-old Ronald Emery is charged with five new counts of child molesting.

As News 18 previously reported, he was already jailed on charges including vicarious sexual gratification and being a repeat sex offender.

According to court documents, corrections officers at the Tippecanoe County Jail received a letter on January 13th.

Investigators determined it was written by Emery.

In the letter, he admits to having intercourse with a young child.

Prosecutors believe the incidents happened in the 90's.

Emery was previously convicted of child molesting in Benton and Clinton counties.

He served a 20-year sentence at the New Castle Correctional Facility.
