CLARK COUNTY, IN (WAVE) - As a result of a multi-year investigation by Indiana State Police, David M. Walsh, 46, has been arrested for sexual misconduct.

Trooper Rob Caudill of Indiana State Police Post at Sellersburg, started an investigation of sexual misconduct in January 2010. In November 2009, Walsh allegedly, met a 14 year old juvenile on the Internet, arranging a meeting with the juvenile under the alias, David M. Walls.

Because of the alias and fake addresses, Trooper Caudill was not able to identify David M. Walsh as the predator. In October 2013, after collecting numerous pieces of communication, Trooper Caudill and was able to identify the alias, David M. Walls as David M. Walsh, from Massachusetts.

Earlier this month, Trooper Caudill learned Walsh would be in Indiana to meet with the former juvenile, who is now 18 years old.

Walsh, now 50, was arrested on charges of Sexual Misconduct with a Minor, B Felony; Child Solicitation, B Felony and Inappropriate Communication with a Minor, D Felony.
