The Tribune-Star

TERRE HAUTE — A former prison employee has been convicted of class-A felony child molesting by a Vigo County jury.

Joshua D. Hall is to be sentenced June 3 in Vigo Superior Court 5. He faces an advisory sentence of 30 years, which could be lengthened due to a prior criminal history.

Hall was employed at the Wabash Valley Correctional Facility prior to his arrest. He was alleged to have molested a victim younger than age 10 in August 2011.

A jury found Hall guilty Wednesday.
