Two child molesters are off the street, thanks to St. Joseph County prosecutors.

Terry Waugh Junior, 30, was convicted on Friday on three counts of child molesting.

The crime took place over a two-year period between 2003 and 2005.

The victim was just nine years old when the abuse began.

Waugh could face more than 65 years in jail.

In a separate case, 42-year-old Christian Ricker was sentenced on Friday on four counts of molesting a child under age 12.

The court ruled that Ricker is a credit-restricted felon, which means he must serve 85-percent of his 62-year-sentence.

He will also have to register as a lifetime sex offender.
