MUNCIE — A Delaware County man was sentenced to 145 years in prison for child molestation, prosecutors have announced.

It comes after a jury found Thomas L. Beall, 37, guilty on five total counts of child molesting — three as a level 1 felony and two as a level 4. One count was dismissed, court records show.

Prosecutors recommended a sentence of 162 years.

During sentencing, Delaware Circuit Court Judge Marianne Vorhees said the victims "have suffered long-term and significant harm at the hands of the defendant," according to the Delaware County Prosecutor's Office.
