William Brewer

A Putnam County man was arrested Friday on various charges stemming from a sexual relationship with a 15-year-old girl.

William J. Brewer, 23, of Bainbridge, is charged with felony counts of child solicitation, vicarious sexual gratification and sexual misconduct with a minor.

Police say the girl told her mother about the alleged sexual relationship last month. The alleged victim met Brewer at their workplace in Hendricks County. Investigators say between December 31, 2013 and January 26, the two exchanged text messages about dating and sexual relations.

Brewer then allegedly had sexual relations with the victim in his car and in his home in Putnam County on or around January 24-25 of this year.

Brewer was booked into the Putnam County Jail Friday morning on $2,500 bond.
