TIPPECANOE CO., Ind. (WLFI) – A Lafayette man is sentenced to more than five decades in prison for child molesting.
Last month, Payton Jarrard, 29, was found guilty of child molesting and pleaded guilty to being a habitual offender.
Prosecutors said last August, Jarrard inappropriately touched an 11-year-old girl.
He was located by authorities in September less than a week after he was featured on News 18’s Fugitive Search.
Jarrard is expected to serve about 43 years in prison of his 52-year sentence.
