Long investigation leads to arrest of Clay County man

A lengthy investigation led to the arrest of a Clay County man for allegedly having a sexual relationship with a 15-year-old Terre Haute juvenile in late 2007.

According to Brazil City Police Detective Clint McQueen, Aristin Losey, 23, rural Brazil, was incarcerated at the Clay County Justice Center when two Terre Haute Police Department detectives served two arrest-warrants for class B felony charges of sexual misconduct with a minor Thursday.

McQueen told The Brazil Times it was the culmination of a lengthy investigation between the BCPD and THPD.

"I started this investigation with THPD Det. Rick Decker in January," McQueen said.

"It took so long because the sexual misconduct allegations in this case took place between November-December in 2007, with alleged multiple incidents occurring in Clay and Vigo counties."

The Clay County Prosecutor's Office confirmed Monday that Losey was charged with two class B felony sexual misconduct charges in April. A jury trial is tentatively scheduled for Feb. 9.

Officials confirmed a bond was issued for $25,000 with 10 percent allowed.

However, due to several other unrelated outstanding legal cases filed against Losey, the court ordered the bond be paid consecutively with any other bond arrangements.

Losey, who was transported to the Vigo County Jail late Thursday, appeared for formal arraignment in Vigo County Circuit Court-Division 3 Friday and reappeared again Monday.

A $75,000 cash bond (with no 10 percent allowed) was set in the matter by the court.

Losey is expected to remain incarcerated while awaiting further court proceedings in both counties.

Further details were not available as of press time.

Daniel Vanzant your comment might be a bit harsh, but he does seem to be a problem over and over again. Seems that we keep seeing his name being booked into jail or being charged.

Lets hope that the judge and prosecutor take this serious. I would be a shame if the prosecutor gives him a little to nothing plea in clay county and the prosecutor in vigo goes for the max sentence. Cant wait and see the outcome, regardless i bet he gets more time from the charge in Vigo.

Good Work Detective Clint McQueen since you have taken over as Detective you have busted youe behind and you have gotten results. Thank you for you hard work, keep it up.

nhs_babe_2011 You are obviously not mature enough to know that when someone is 23 years old, they are an adult. He needs to be held completely accountable for such actions. Parents, make sure you know who your children are friends with. A fifteen year old hanging out with an older man should raise some red flags!

Way to go, Clint! Great job!

It should be noted that even though the female is 15-yo, more and more of our youth are considering any type of sexual relations their way to get noticed, be loved .. insert reason here ____________. Bottom line is .. males and females in the pre-teen/teen and beyond should be raised to feel good about themselves, not like they are invisible or are the TVs best friend.
