INDIANAPOLIS (AP) -- An Indiana State Police officer has been placed on unpaid leave following his arrest in Illinois on charges alleging that he had sex with a 14-year-old girl.
Officer Isaac Martinez was arrested Friday in Morris, Ill., by state police detectives following a long investigation sparked by an anonymous tip.
Martinez was being held in Illinois as he awaits extradition to Marion County.
Martinez faces two counts of sexual misconduct with a minor alleging sex acts and one count of sexual misconduct with a minor alleging sexual touching.
Martinez is a 5 1/2-year state police officer who had been assigned to road patrol duties in Indianapolis. He was placed on unpaid leave Sept. 23 as the investigation progressed.
