Indy man’s probation revoked for violations

An Indianapolis man convicted of sexual misconduct with a minor will serve nearly a year and a half in jail after he violated multiple terms of his probation.

Timothy Potts Jr., 25, formerly of Franklin, will serve 650 days of his suspended sentence, with credit for 110 actual days.

Potts failed to maintain contact with the Brown County Probation Department, to notify the probation department of an address change, to obtain a court ordered psycho-sexual evaluation and complete all recommended follow-up as he was ordered, according to court documents.

Potts also violated his probation when he was found to have committed invasion of privacy in Johnson County in January.

He was convicted in May 2013 of sexual conduct with a minor, a Class C felony. A plea deal dropped five other charges against him.

Potts came to the attention of police on March 14, 2012, when school staff members saw him kiss a 12-year-old girl as she exited a bus at Brown County Junior High School. An officer confronted Potts, who said he was 14, but a check of his ID revealed he was 21.

Police learned Potts also had a relationship with a 15-year-old Brown County girl. The girl told police the relationship had begun when she was 13 and living out of the county. She told police that in October 2011, Potts rode his bicycle from Franklin to her Brown County home and had intercourse with her, a probable cause affidavit said.

He was initially sentenced to four years in the Brown County jail and two years on probation.
