Former Huntingburg resident facing molestation, incest charges


A man recently sentenced to 36 years in the Indiana Department of Corrections in Gibson County was transferred to Dubois County for similar charges of molestation and incest.

Timothy M. Schieve, 47, was transferred to Dubois County Wednesday on a Dubois County Circuit Court warrant for two Class A felony counts of child molesting and two Class B felony counts of incest. Schieve is accused of molesting a young female victim at his Huntingburg and Oakland City residences between January of 2010 and March of 2014.

The girl told her mother of the incidents. The mother then reported it to the Huntingburg Police Department in July of 2016. Huntingburg Police opened anĀ investigation and contacted the Division of Child Services as well as Indiana State Police to assist in the investigation.

On November 1, Schieve was sentenced to 36 years for the occurrences in Oakland City. The court also mandated that Schieve was to be registered as a sexually violent felon.

Schieve made his first appearance in Dubois County Circuit Court on Thursday. He is being held without bond in the Dubois County Security Center.
