Bedford Man Arrested On Charges Of Child Molestation

Last updated on Wednesday, January 24, 2018

(BEDFORD) - A Bedford man was arrested on Tuesday after Indiana State Police say a 13-year-old boy reported that 46-year-old Brent Goodman had exposed himself and touched the boy.

Goodman is facing felony charges of child molesting, child exploitation, vicarious sexual gratification and possession of child pornography.

According to a Lawrence County Superior Court I probable cause affidavit, the teen told police he lived with Goodman as a foster child from June 2016 until August 2017.

During that time, the boy says Goodman made him watch pornography and would touch him in a sexual manner. The boy told police that Goodman would take nude photos him with his cell phone. Goodman also allegedly showed the boy nude photos of other males on the same cell phone.

Troopers obtained a search warrant for Goodman's home and cell phones. One cell phone contained multiple nude images of young males, including the boy. The photos were taken in Goodman's kitchen and master bedroom.

They also found internet searches on the phone for pornographic photos of teen males.

Goodman posted a $5,005 bond Tuesday and was released from jail shortly after his arrest.
