Joshua Catiller

A Washington man pleaded guilty to one count of sexual misconduct with a minor Wednesday in Daviess County Superior Court. Joshua D. Catiller, 36, was arrested Jan. 4, 2018 and initially was charged with sexual misconduct with a minor and possession of child pornography.

According to a probable cause affidavit, a complainant reported to Washington police that graphic images and text messages involving Catiller and a 14-year-old female had been found on his cellphone. Also found on the phone were videos that were sexual in nature.

During an interview, officers also learned that Catiller had engaged in sexual relations with the victim and the two had exchanged nude photos. The events occurred between May 15, 2017 and July 10, 2017.

Daviess County Superior Court Judge Dean Sobecki said should he accept the plea agreement, Catiller could face 3,600 days in the Indiana Department of Correction with 1,800 of those suspended. The remaining 1,800 could be served in Daviess County Community Corrections. Catiller must also register as a sex offender.

He is set for sentencing July 3 at 1 p.m.
