Man sentenced to 160 years for molesting 10-year-old

MARION, Ind. (WISH) — A 35-year-old Marion man was sentenced Thursday to 160 years in prison after being found guilty of 10 counts of child molestation that involved impregnating a 10-year-old. 

A jury found Nicholas Deon Thrash guilty in August in Grant Superior Court 1. 

The grandmother of the young girl who was molested and impregnated in Marion said in May 2017, when Thrash was charged, that he was someone they trusted. The girl was 20 weeks pregnant when the charges were filed. 

Thrash remained in the Grant County Jail on Thursday.

(Note: The number of the years in the prison sentence has been corrected in this story.)
