Hillsboro man takes plea in child sex case

TERRE HAUTE — A  Hillsboro man accused of child molesting in Vigo Superior Court 3 has pleaded guilty to dissemination of matter harmful to minors.

Michael DeWayne Brown, 41, appeared in court Monday where Judge David Bolk accepted Brown’s guilty plea and dismissed a count of child molesting. Brown was sentenced to three years in prison, with two years executed and one year suspended to formal probation.

Terre Haute Police investigated an allegation that Brown had inappropriately touched an elementary school-age child between Feb. 16, 2011, and July 12, 2012, resulting in a class-C felony charge of child molestation.

Brown was also charged with dissemination of material harmful to minors, a class-D felony, after the alleged victim told police that Brown had played pornographic videos that the child watched, sometime between Sept. 1, 2011, and Feb. 28, 2012.

Brown was given credit for 162 days served in jail awaiting trial.
