Johan Mark Doeden – Repeat Sex Offender

MUNCIE — Authorities say a convicted child molester has struck again — in two Eastern Central Indiana counties.

Johan Mark Doeden, 32, most recently of the 700 block of West Queen Avenue in Muncie, has been accused of repeatedly sexually abusing a child in Delaware County between October 2004 and last December.

The crimes occurred when the victim was between 7 and 9 years old, according to court records.

Doeden was charged this month in Delaware Circuit Court 2 with three counts of child molesting, two Class A felonies carrying a standard 30-year prison term and one Class C felony with a standard four-year sentence.

He also is charged with possession of child pornography, a Class D felony with a standard 18-month sentence.

An initial hearing in that case is set for Jan. 3.

In the meantime, Doeden will be held in the Madison County jail in Anderson, where he has been incarcerated since his arrest in August for sex crimes committed in that county.

Doeden this week pleaded guilty to three counts of child molesting — two Class A felonies and one Class C felony — and child solicitation, a Class D felony, in Madison Superior Court 3.

Judge Thomas Newman Jr. set sentencing in that case for Jan. 18.

Doeden was convicted of child molesting in Benton County, in western Indiana, in April 1996 and was sentenced to eight years in prison. He was released from prison in October 1999, according to state Department of Correction records.
