Man gets 30 years for molestation

TERRE HAUTE — A Terre Haute man has been sentenced to 30 years in prison after pleading guilty to child molestation. Timothy L. Sanders Jr., 25, received the sentence in Vigo Superior Court 5. He was given credit for time served in the Vigo County Jail since his arrest, and was ordered to register as a sex offender upon release from prison.
