From Local Sources
JASPER — A Jasper man arrested in November on child molestation charges was sentenced Monday to 50 years in prison.
Deputy Prosectuing Attorney Brian Lucchi says Alejandro Hernandez, 53, 1438 Reese St., was sentenced by plea agreement to 50 total years at the Indiana Department of Corrections.
The Jasper Police Department arrested Hernandez on Nov. 28, 2017 and accused him of felony child molesting and confinement after receiving a report of a juvenile having been molested for an extended period of time.
After investigating, police alleged Hernandez was involved in sexual activity with a juvenile.
In November, authorities booked Hernandez into the Dubois County Security Center on preliminary Level 1 and Level 4 felony counts of child molesting and a preliminary Level 5 felony count of criminal confinement.
Hernandez pled guilty to two felony counts of Level 1 child molesting and received 25 years for each count.
In announcing the sentence, Lucchi thanked the local agencies which cooperated in the case, including the Jasper Police Department, the Indiana State Police, the Indiana Department of Child Services, Memorial Hospital and the Southwestern Indiana Child Advocacy Center Coalition.
