An Evansville man received his sentencing on Monday after being found guilty of Child Molesting in September.

60-year-old Kevin Weiss of Evansville was sentenced to 79 years in prison on Monday after being found guilty of five counts of Child Molesting on September 10.

Following his guilty verdict in September, Weiss was also found guilty of the Repeat Sexual Offender Sentencing Enhancement for having a previous conviction of Child Molestation in Posey County in 1990.

In November of 2019, the victim attended a Truth Talk presentation at an area school that covered the topic of sexual abuse. Afterward, the victim passed a note to the presenter. The victim then told the presenter that Weiss had been molesting the victim. The presenter followed the proper protocol and notified school staff who then notified the Department of Child Services.

After what was our coldest start today since January 8th, temperatures only climbed as high as 25° in Evansville earlier today, marking our coolest afternoon in just under two weeks. The evening ahead will be equally bone-chilling; after seeing temperatures around 21° at dinnertime we'll tumble back down to 19° by 10 o’clock under gradually decreasing cloud cover. The combination of clear skies and northerly winds will allow temperatures to fall all the way back down to 15° in Evansville early Friday morning. Worse yet, windchill values are expected to dive right back down into the single digits area-wide.
