Follow Daily Journal:


A Franklin man was arrested after police said he inappropriately touched an 8-year-old girl.

Ronald M. Keyes, 54, 1451 Scarlett Court, was arrested on a warrant for a charge of child molesting.

Witnesses told police that Keyes touched a child on Jan. 25 while they were sitting in a chair at his home, watching a cartoon, according to a police report. The child also told police that Keyes had touched her while she was laying on his bed watching television, the report said.

In an interview with police, Keyes denied any inappropriate touching and said he would never do anything like what he was being accused of, the report said. He told police the physical contact was innocent and the child never told him that he was making her uncomfortable.

Keyes was released from the Johnson County jail on $8,000 bond.
