FORT WAYNE, Indiana — The mother of a girl repeatedly molested by a northeastern man told the judge who sentenced him to an 8-year prison term that she still wants the man in their lives.
Forty-five-year-old Cary Hart of Monroeville pleaded guilty in September to charges of child molesting and child solicitation. Two additional child molesting counts were dismissed as part of his plea agreement.
The Journal Gazette reports (http://bit.ly/10bWeaZ ) Hart's now 15-year-old victim told police he molested her four times between 2011 and 2013 and sent her emails and social media messages asking her for nude photos.
Despite Hart's criminal acts, the girl's mother told an Allen County judge during Friday's sentencing that she and her daughter still want him in their lives. The girl also told the court that she forgives Hart.
