Share this post

A jury in Porter County deliberated about three hours Thursday night before finding a 39-year-old Portage man guilty of nine felony counts in connection with accusations of molesting four boys. Sentencing for Christopher Truman was scheduled for February 25th. Defense attorney Larry Rogers critical of the evidence presented was quoted in final arguments as telling the jury the case “ought to scare” everyone in the courtroom. Deputy Prosecutor Cheryl Polarek said molestation is a crime of a private nature and one that can lack physical evidence.
