INDIANAPOLIS A Capitol Police officer is on leave after being charged with molesting an 11-year-old girl in a swimming pool.

Indiana State Police spokesman Capt. Dave Bursten said Tuesday that 43-year-old Scott Litten of Anderson is on paid administrative leave but will be placed on unpaid leave if a hearing establishes probable cause that he committed a felony.

Litten was initially charged with sexual battery in Johnson County south of Indianapolis, but a charge of felony child molesting was filed after the girl told child protection workers he fondled her Saturday night.

Bursten says Litten has been a Capitol Police officer since 2002. Capitol Police patrol the Statehouse and state office buildings.

Calls to Litten's home seeking comment were met with busy signals. It's not clear if he has an attorney.
