Evansville Man Sentenced To 79 Years For Child Molesting, Weapons Charges
Vanderburgh Circuit Court Magistrate Judge Michael J. Cox sentenced 25-year-old Ryan Remling to a 79-year prison term Thursday afternoon.
In March, Remling was convicted of four counts of Child Molesting, all level 1 felonies, in Vanderburgh County Circuit Court following a two-day trial.
Remling was arrested in December of 2016 after Evansville Police Detectives were notified that videos of the incidents involving the young victim were found on Remling’s phone.
The victim was under the age of 14.
“He stole choices from this little girl, that she should have had the chance to make on her own,” explained Vanderburgh County Deputy Prosecutor Kelly Corne during the sentencing hearing.
Remling was also facing a level 4 felony charge, for possessing a deadly weapon while in custody at the Vanderburgh County Detention Center back in December of 2016.
Following the sentencing hearing on the child molestation case, Remling pleaded guilty to the weapons charge. Remling received a 4-year prison term in that case.
The 75-year term in the child molestation case and 4-year term in the weapons case, will run consecutive for a total of 79 years at the Indiana Department of Corrections.
