TIPPECANOE CO., Ind. (WLFI) — Former West Lafayette minister Craig Burden was denied Wednesday the request to modify his sentence for child exploitation and child porn.
According to the motion, Burden requested reunification therapy with his child and the remaining balance of his sentence to be modified to community corrections.
Tippecanoe Superior Court Judge Randy Williams denied the motion.
Burden, 31, was a worship leader at Calvary Baptist Church when he was arrested in July 2015.
His ex-wife went to police after she found child pornography on his computer.
Burden pleaded guilty and was sentenced to four years in prison, two years on Community Corrections and one year of probation.
