56-year-old takes deal on child molest charges

A 56-year-old man pleaded guilty Friday in Allen Superior Court to a single count of child molesting.

Originally charged with six charges of child molesting, including four Class A felonies punishable by 20 to 50 years in prison, Thomas A. Carboni pleaded guilty to one of two Class C felony charges punishable by up to eight years.

Carboni, of the 3000 block of Lincolndale Avenue, admitted to touching a young girl to satisfy his own sexual desires.

While his attorney asked him if he committed the crime, Carboni said yes but gently shook his head no.

The crimes took place between March 2011 and May 2013 and came to light when a woman told police Carboni was molesting her daughter, whom he knew. The girl told investigators he began molesting her when she was 3 years old.

He faces a suspended prison sentence and a four-year term of probation when he is sentenced.
