TIPPECANOE COUNTY, Ind. (WLFI) - A man has been sentenced to 13 years for child molesting charges in Tippecanoe County.
This comes after he was extradited back from Alabama after missing his trial.

Back in October, 43-year-old Aaron Jenkins was found guilty for charges of child molestation and attempted child exploitation.

Prosecutors said he inappropriately touched a girl younger than 14 in July of 2016. He also asked her for nude photographs.

He was sentenced to 10 years in the Department of Corrections and three years on supervised probation.
