MAN ADMITS TO SEXUAL MISCONDUCT WITH MINOR

(Richmond, IN)--Five years in prison is the sentence for a 35-year-old Richmond man who admitted to having sexual relations with a 15-year-old girl.  Jacob French pled guilty as part of a plea deal.  Court documents indicate that French had admitted through text messages to his wife that he had had the relationship.  It’s the second such conviction from the same address on Boston Township Line Road.  Last year, former RP&L General Manager Jim French was convicted of sexual misconduct with a minor and was sentenced to six years in prison.
