Man convicted of molesting young nephew

ELKHART COUNTY A child molestation case is over in Elkhart County, and a man now faces half a century in prison for molesting his 13-year-old nephew.

A jury found 52-year-old James Hinkle guilty of the crime.

It started in 2004, during a summer vacation, and continued until the boy finally told someone about it in 2008.

Hinkle was convicted in a three-day jury trial. He faces up to 53 years in prison, during a sentencing hearing later this month.
