Man gets 253 years for molesting

A central Indiana man has been sentenced to 253 years in prison for child molestation—an offense for which he already has served time behind bars. A Madison County judge sentenced 37-year-old William Everage of Anderson on Monday. Everage pleaded guilty last month to 19 counts of child molesting. A jury trial for Jessica Tooley, Everage's girlfriend, is scheduled for July 17. Prosecutors allege the pair molested an 11-year-old girl late last year. Everage was released from prison in 2010 after serving five years for two child molesting convictions.
