CROWN POINT | A 24-year-old man pleaded guilty Wednesday to child molesting charges involving a 15-year-old girl.

Michael Wayne Clark II accepted a plea agreement offered by the Lake County prosecutor’s office.

Lake Criminal Court Judge Salvador Vasquez sentenced Clark to one year with the Department of Correction after chastising him for having sexual relations with a young teenage girl.

“I find your action to be reprehensible,” Vasquez told Clark.

“You should be out in six months,” the judge said as Clark was handcuffed and led away. Tears filled Clark’s eyes as he looked back at his family in the courtroom.
