PORTAGE — It took nearly six years to navigate the judicial system in both La Porte and Porter counties, but a former Chesterton resident has officially been cleared of child molesting charges originally filed in 2016.

After being found not guilty by a jury in La Porte County Circuit Court in 2020, Jonathan A. Miegl, now a Portage resident, had all pending charges dismissed by Porter County Judge Roger Bradford on Nov. 18.
