Abuse sentence: 8 years at home

An Evansville man accused of sexual misconduct with a 14-year- old girl was sentenced Friday to eight years of home detention with electronic tracking.

Craig D. Hamilton, 34, pleaded guilty to a single count of sexual misconduct with a minor in January.

Vanderburgh Circuit Court Judge David Kiely warned Hamilton that he must continue paying for his electronic tracking and that he could have no contact with the victim or his sentence would be revoked.

The charge stemmed from a December 2011 incident at Hamilton's house in which the victim told investigators that Hamilton forced himself on her after he had been drinking alcohol.

A resident discovered the body at about 1:45 p.m. EST. It was lying on debris near the mouth of a creek that feeds into the White River.

An autopsy was to be performed Saturday at the Vanderburgh County morgue.
