COLUMBIA CITY — Whitley County’s Prosecutor’s Office has issued a warrant for a DNA test in a sexual abuse case.

Dean Pressler was arrested in late December on multiple counts of sexual assault to a minor.

Case reports indicate the alleged victim had two children during the period of the alleged crimes. She stated Pressler was the father of both children, which include a child born in April of 2012 and June of 2010.

Pressler already gave a DNA sample for the younger child. He then asked that sample not be used to determine paternity of the older child.
