East Chicago Man gets 70 Yrs for Child Molesting

Share this post

A 41 year old East Chicago man charged with child molesting will most likely be spending the rest of his life behind bars after being sentenced to 70 years in prison. Lake County Prosecutor Bernard Carter announced today that Derrick Hicks, who pled guilty to child molesting, incest, and sexual misconduct with a minor, was also convicted of being a habitual offender. Hicks admitted in court back in January before his jury trial was to begin that he had molested a 12 year old girl who gave birth to his child.
