WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) — A West Lafayette man is accused of molesting a girl under the age of 14. 39-year old Michael Wellman II was charged Tuesday with one count of child molesting. Prosecutors accuse Wellman of having sex with the girl on July 20th at his home.

Wellman is currently in the Tippecanoe County Jail.
