Man Accused Of Child Molestation

Parent's refused to believe daughter's story:

Police in Indiana have arrested a Valparaiso man on charges of molesting two daughters of a family that he had previously been staying with.

Anthony M. Welkie, 42, was arrested after allegations began to surface when one of the girls told their grandmother that he was touching her inappropriately.

According to court records, she had earlier tried to tell her own parents but unbelievably they doubted their daughters story as she had just recently learned about the subject in school.

However, when questioned by authorities the younger of the two daughter's told investigators that the suspect too had molested her at least 20 times.

Anthony Welkie has denied the accusations and is currently being held on $25,000 bail.

    I have to wonder, how deeply do YOU investigate allegations before re-posting them as if all accused are presumed guilty? Almost two years have passed, and this man still sits in jail awaiting trial. Surely if the prosecution had a decent case to present, this case would have come to trial. The accused is a former marine and a gulf war vet who faithfully and honorably served this country. The continued continuances speak to the dubious nature of these allegations. Bring the case to trial NOW, or release the wrongly accused.

  2. Truth is, If YOU have any information on Anthony's case feel free to send me an e-mail via the contact form.

    I'd be more than happy to look into it...

  3. If they didn't have anything on this guy, he still wouldn't be sitting on his ass in the Porter County Jail. Would he?

    Abbot has a right to a speedy trial... apparently he's not ready to face a judge and jury. If he drags this out as long as he can, he might only get time served in county and not have to go to big boy prison.

  4. He was convicted on April 7th of 2 class A felonies and 1 class C felony. Apparently there was evidence. Where were his friends and family?
