TERRE HAUTE, Ind. (WTHI) – A Vigo County man accused of child molesting is back in jail after violating his home-detention.
Robert Knierim was arrested in January for child molesting.
Knierim is accused of molesting an 11-year-old between April and August of 2014. Knierim denies the allegations.
A judge later placed him on pre-trial home detention and was to be evaluated by drug and alcohol tests. Knierim failed a Breathalyzer test violating his home detention – placing him back in jail.
His bond is now set a $75,000 and he is due back in court October 7.
