Scott Dean's daughter arrested

Marlin Azucena Dean

The oldest adopted daughter of convicted child molester and former Columbia County Commissioner Scott Dean is in jail on charges of burglary and theft by receiving stolen property.

Marlin Azucena Dean, 19, was arrested Saturday in Harlem. Details of the incident had not been released Sunday afternoon.

Scott Dean, who was convicted in Decem­ber of molesting another of his adopted teen daughters, was denied a new trial in February.

Allegations about Dean came to light when Marlin ran away from home and was later found in Mexico. In a phone conversation with investigators, she said Dean had tried to have sex with her. She later recanted.

She was being held Sunday in the Columbia County Detention Center. No bond had been set.
