An Indiana man who repeatedly molested a 10-year-old girl, leaving her pregnant, has been sentenced to more than 100 in prison.

Nicholas Deon Thrash, 34, was sentenced Thursday to 160 years with a minimum of 132 years. He was found guilty in last month of 10 counts of molestation against his girlfriend's daughter, DailyMail reports. 

The now-12-year-old girl testified that Thrash, of Marion, repeatedly molested her, leaving her pregnant at age 10. She clutched a stuffed dog to her chest during the first day of Thrash's trial as she softly told a Grant County jury that Thrash molested her at least 15 times.

Prosecutors said the victim was 11 when she gave birth to a boy in September 2017.

The Chronicle-Tribune reports the girl's mother faces neglect and other charges.

She allegedly discovered her daughter's pregnancy as the girl was trying on dresses for a school dance, and instructed her to say a classmate impregnated her.
