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.

According to court documents, the victim says she did not remember the incident, but Wellman told her about it afterward and said it was consensual. Prosecutors say he admitted he knew the girl's age.

Wellman is currently in the Tippecanoe County Jail.
