An Indianapolis man was sentenced to 10 years in prison after pleading guilty to molesting a 12-year-old girl for years.

Luke Melton, 31, was charged with four counts of child molesting following a three-month investigation.  Investigators said the victim told them the abuse started in either early 2009 or 2010 and continued through February 2012.

According to the probable cause affidavit, the girl said Melton snuck into her bedroom on multiple occasions, waking her up by touching or raping her.

Court documents stated the girl’s mother said Melton confessed to inappropriately touching the girl but denied having intercourse. He said he “could not remember the last time he had touched” the girl. The girl’s mother said Melton “had suicidal thoughts” and sought treatment after confessing.

      Beginning on April 6, 1994, Hutus began slaughtering the Tutsis in the African country of Rwanda. .. Lasting 100 days, the Rwanda genocide left approximately 800,000 Tutsis and Hutu sympathizers dead.

      Also during the violence, thousands of Tutsi women were raped. Some were raped and then killed, others were kept as sex slaves for weeks. Some Tutsi women and girls were also tortured before being killed, such as having their breasts cut off or had sharp objects shoved up their vagina.

      Hay as__ho__ all black men, not one white man to be seen. did you read 800,000 dead raps.

      Only a simple minded person can reduce the problems of the world to a "BLACK and WHITE" Issue.

      Like I have said GET AN EDUCATION.

      P.S. I AM A BLACK MAN

      Actually, it will be more like 5 years as in prison it is 2 for 1…and now with time cuts offered for education and other classes, who knows he could be out sooner…in my opinion pedophiles should be eliminated. you take a child's innocence you should not be able to sit in prison on my hardearned tax dollar…

        Totally agree. If they are sick enough to do it once, they will do it again, and chances are the next time they will kill thier victim to help keep them from getting caught. There is no rehabilitation for sick people like this…sick is too nice of a word…instead of testing on animals, we should test on these people until they die…but test nuclear things on them…somethign horrible…

    Pretty much the lowest form of being on this earth . I was abused. My whole childhood , I know how much this girl hurts and what courage it took to come forth with the truth. God I hope that sick ass gets the goriest death that another inmate can conjure . Oh and to say its just a "white " problem is so fucking beyond stupid

      We don't really hear about a lot of murders in prison for no other reason that it doesn't really happen. Oh, and prison rape is really frowned upon by the entire Department of Correction… You know… the people that get paid to keep the convict safe.

  • Melissa

    I hope he gets his in prison…prison is too nice of a place for this reject…and why didn't her mother do something when he confessed????? awww, he sought medical help…hes really gonna need it when he gets where he is going…sick ba*&ard…

    Tattoo “child molester” on the forehead of this walking piece of feces, and make sure he’s in with the general population. Maybe he will accidentally fall on something sharp…several times.

      See my reply to your idiotic rant Black man! It's on one or the other threads you are stalking me on.

      lol

  • damn

    As a white man I agree that this shit is sick and he should be put into the middle of a big circle and be handed over for the public to punish. But please stop comparing a select few perverted people to every white person. We can’t control what they do. We don’t rank black people as rapist child abandoning killers. You can’t help it what other people of your race do and neither can we. Stop the comparison because their are good people from all races and genders.

    well like the mother keeps on saying it all looks twice as bad on paper ! REALLY WHO SAY'S THAT! AND AS A MOTHER OF 2 DOES IT GET WORSE!???????????

    In fact, all races share similar crime ratios. Yet there's no outrage or racialized debate about "white on white" violence. Instead, the myth and associated fear of "black on black" crime is sold as a legitimate, mainstream descriptive and becomes American status quo.The truth? As the largest racial group, whitescommit the majority of crimes in America. In particular, whites are responsible for the vast majority of violent crimes. With respect to aggravated assault, whites led blacks 2-1 in arrests; in forcible-rape cases, whites led all racial and ethnic groups by more than 2-1. And in larceny theft, whites led blacks, again, more than 2-1.
