Man accused of sucking minor's toes appears in court

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- A man in his 60's has been accused in what some might call a bizarre case of child molestation.

Police say Daniel Brackin turned himself in on Monday after police issued a warrant for his arrest last week.

He is accused of molesting a 12-year-old girl he had been asked to stay away from.  She told police he kissed her inappropriately.

Brackin had no comment in court Tuesday afternoon. Court documents show Brackin lived next door to the 12-year-old girls grandparents in Scottsburg. Police say that was where the two met.

The alleged incident took place at her home in Charlestown. Police say the girl got off of her bus on March 14 around 3 p.m. She said she went inside and was greeted by Brackin who offered her chocolate milk and a bag of chocolate candies.

The girl told him he was not supposed to be there and asked him to leave. She says he removed her socks and shoes and began kissing and sucking on her toes. Brackin then told her not to tell anyone.  Court documents stated she ignored that and told her mother what happened.

The girl's grandparents told Brackin to stay away from her after what they called inappropriate behavior when she lived with them in Scottsburg.  Her grandmother told police he had repeatedly asked about the victim after she moved away and even asked for her phone number.  Her grandmother told police he also touched her arm in an odd way, wrestled with her and would not let her get up after sitting on his lap in the past.  Her grandfather told police they asked he stay away from the 12-year-old after that.  On Tuesday, Clark County Circuit Court Judge Vicki Carmichael placed a no contact order between him and anyone under the age of 18 as well as the victim.

Prosecutors say there's a chance could be another victim. Court documents reveal the little girl told police this is the only time that anything like this is happened and she denied anything else occurred.

Brackin was appointed a public defender on Tuesday, and will be back in court in August. He's Being held at $10,000 cash bond in the Clark County Jail.  If convicted of the Class C felony, he could face up to eight years behind bars.
