100-year sentence for molesting 6-month-old

MUNCIE, Ind. – An Ohio man convicted of child molesting a 6-month-old Muncie girl, infecting her with a sexually transmitted disease, has been sentenced to 100 years in prison.

The Star Press reports (http://tspne.ws/1laJPHK) Delaware Circuit Judge Kimberly Dowling told 25-year-old Bryan Michael Strickler of Streetsboro, Ohio, during the sentencing Monday that his case represented "the worst of the worst" crimes, the state's standard for imposition of a maximum sentence.

Public defender Sam Beasley had earlier called a probation officer's recommendation of a maximum sentence "inexcusable." Strickler had pleaded for leniency, saying he was not a bad person and he was sorry.

Strickler was convicted of child molesting and attempted child molesting in a bench trial last month.

Authorities said the girl was molested in the fall of 2011.
