A 34-year-old Indiana man was sentenced to 160 years in prison on Thursday for impregnating a 10-year-old girl, who courageously testified against him.
The girl took the stand in Grant County earlier this year, telling the jury that Nicholas Thrash molested her at least 15 times. She was 11 when she gave birth to a boy last year.

"(The victim) was foremost in our mind during this case," Grant County Prosecutor Jim Luttrull said after Thrash was found guilty of 10 counts of child molesting in August, according to the Chronicle-Tribune. "We appreciate an enormous amount of people ... who offered their assistance to the victim, for CASA (Court Appointed Special Advocates) and all the work they provided in the case."
The conviction is "something little compared to what (the victim) has gone through and what she will go through,” deputy prosecutor Lisa Glancy told the newspaper.
 
Thrash will have to serve a minimum of 132 of the 160 years, according to CBS 4 in Indiana.

The girl's mother faces neglect and other charges, the Chronicle-Tribune reported earlier this year. Investigators say she discovered the pregnancy as her daughter was trying on dresses for a school dance, and told her to say a classmate is responsible.
