SIMPSON COUNTY, Ky. (WBKO) -- Former Franklin Police Captain Larry Schultz, was indicted by a Grand Jury in Simpson County on sexual abuse of a minor charge.

The judge set Schultz bond at $10,000 unsecured.
13 News contacted the Simpson County Jail, and they said Schultz has never been an inmate there, indicating Schultz was not arrested.
Schultz was with the Franklin Police Department from 2006 to July 2018 when he resigned, according to officials.
According to Franklin's current Police Chief Roger Solomon, “Larry Schultz was suspended without pay July 24, 2018 for and during the time the Kentucky State Police were investigating the allegations against Larry Schultz that presumably led to the indictment.
