LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) — A Lafayette man will spend more than four decades in prison for sex crimes against a child. 43-year old Kevin Sweat was sentenced Friday to 46 years in the Indiana Department of Corrections and 8 years on probation.
Sweat previously pleaded guilty in connection to multiple charges including child molesting, child seduction and sexual misconduct with a minor.
As News 18 previously reported, prosecutors say he began touching the girl inappropriately in 2013, when she was around 10 or 11 years old.
It continued for about two years.
