Today, Hamilton County Prosecutor Joseph T. Deters announced the indictment of former Talbert House employee Kenneth Hackett.  Hackett is charged with 2 counts of Gross Sexual Imposition (Felony 3).  If convicted of both charges, he faces the possibility of 10 years in prison and registration as a sex offender every 6 months for 25 years.

For the last 4 years, Hackett worked as a Life Skills coach at Talbert House.

Hackett previously worked at Hamilton County DDS, Brown County DDS and Envision.

Hackett became acquainted with the victim in this case and her family through his employment with Talbert House.

Hackett is now charged with having sexual contact with the victim on September 13th while they were alone in his car.

Hamilton County Prosecutor Joseph T. Deters commented, “This case is disturbing because of what happened to this victim but also because Hackett has always worked with vulnerable children and adults.  We are concerned that there may be more victims who have not come forward.

Anyone who may have been a victim of Hackett should contact Hamilton County Sheriff’s Detective Andrew Stoll at 513-595-8548.”
