TIPPECANOE COUNTY, Ind. (WLFI) — A Lafayette man received his sentence Thursday morning in a Tippecanoe County courtroom after he was found guilty last month of child molesting and sexual misconduct.

Richard Gill, 41, was sentenced to 80 years in the Department of Corrections, all executed. Gill said in court Thursday, he plans on appealing the sentence.

Gill was found guilty last month of eight counts of child molesting and two counts of sexual misconduct. Detectives said Gill was molesting a young girl over the course of four years. In June, the jury deliberated more than three hours before reaching a verdict.
