COLUMBIA CITYâ A man who had sex with a 14-year-old girl received a five-year prison sentence Monday.
Bradley Kincaid, 21, will serve three of his five years in the Indiana Department of Corrections (DOC) and have the remaining two suspended.
Kincaidâs attorney, Whitley County Public Defender Brad Voelz, said his client should receive a short sentence because of his admission of guilt early and remorse over his crime.
âHeâs maintained consistent employment, and has no relevant criminal history,â Voelz said.
Whitley County Prosecutor Matt Rentschler said Kincaidâs remorse did not eliminate the need for a penalty.
âWhat Mr. Kincaid did in this case was obviously wrong and obviously criminal,â he said.
The prosecutor took exception with some of Kincaidâs testimony in the pre-sentence report.
