CROWN POINT | A Gary man was sentenced Friday to 16 years in prison for molesting a family member, then between 6 and 8 years old, while living in Cedar Lake.

Michael Fulton, 44, admitted to molesting the boy between January 2008 and July 2010.

In exchange for the guilty plea and Fulton's agreement to the 16-year sentence, prosecutors dismissed prior child molesting charges filed in 2011 relative to a separate incident.

The plea deal also called for the dismissal of multiple other counts of sexual offenses in the more current case, which was filed in 2012.
