ANGOLA — A Jonesville, Michigan, man is in custody following his arrest on Monday for two counts of felony child molesting.

The Steuben County Sheriff’s Office arrested Kevin A. Lambos, 34, in connection with an incident that took place in April 2022 at a residence in rural Fremont.

Lambos was taken into custody following an interview with Sheriff’s detectives. Details of that interview were not included in charging documents filed in Steuben Superior Court on Tuesday.

The arrest comes after a four-week investigation into allegations that Lambos had sexual contact with a 12-year-old girl in April 2022 at the residence Lambos then shared with the victim’s mother.

Court records said that Lambos fondled the girl while she was in her bed and also digitally penetrated her. It occurred on the night after an event at school the two attended, court records imply.

The girl told her mother about the incident, but the girl said she was told to say the incident was an accident. She also told an uncle, who later told the girl’s grand parents. The girl’s grandmother notified authorities.

Lambos was booked into the Steuben County Jail on one count of child molesting, a Level 1 felony, and one count of Level 4 felony child molesting. He is being held without bond pending an initial hearing.

Lambos was supposed to appear before Magistrate James Burns Tuesday afternoon.

Assisting the Sheriff’s Office in the investigation were the Dr. Bill Lewis Child Advocacy Center and the Indiana Department of Child Services.
