(BROWNSTOWN) - A 56-year-old man who earlier pleaded guilty to attempting to molest a child received a 14-year prison term on Tuesday afternoon in Jackson Circuit Court.

Larry Wayne Cockerham of Seymour pleaded guilty to that Class Bfelony charge during a hearing on July 10 in front of Senior Judge Bill Vance.

Vance suspended six years of that sentence and ordered Cockerham to spend them on supervised probation.

Seymour Police Detective Brian Moore says Cockerham's arrest stems from an incident with a girl younger than 13-years-old. That incident was reported by a family member.

Moore says the girl lives in Jennings County and had been visiting a relative in Seymour when Cockerham allegedly molested the girl.
