TIPPECANOE COUNTY, Ind. (WLFI) – A man is sentenced to four decades in prison after pleading guilty to child molesting last month.

As News 18 reported in November, a 12-year-old girl accused Modeo Manning, 46, of touching her inappropriately and having sex with her at his apartment.

Prosecutors said Manning initially denied having sex with the girl but later admitted it happened twice last summer.

Manning, who is already a registered sex offender after a 2005 conviction in Illinois, was sentenced to 40 years in prison. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
