TIPPECANOE COUNTY, Ind. (WLFI) —  A Lafayette man is sentenced to a decade in prison for sexual misconduct with a minor.

Michael Black, 30, pleaded guilty to the felony charge in April. According to prosecutors, Black was having a sexual relationship with a 14-year-old girl he’d known since she was 11.

Thursday, Black was sentenced to 10 years, fully executed, in the department of corrections. Prosecutors said Black’s mental illness was a mitigating factor in the sentencing.
