HARTFORD CITY, Ind. - A former northeastern Indiana city councilman and retired teacher has been sentenced to 10 years in prison on child molesting charges.
A Blackford County judge ordered the sentence on Monday against 66-year-old John Adams. He pleaded guilty in June to charges of sexual misconduct with a minor.
Adams was arrested last year on charges of abusing two boys, with prosecutors saying one of the boys was 8 years old when the molesting started.
The Star Press of Muncie reports Adams apologized in court for the sexual abuse and said he had given his "heart and soul" to Blackford County.
Adams is a retired Blackford High School art teacher who was elected in 2011 to his third term on Hartford City's council.
