(Muncie, Ind.) — A former Central Indiana school nurse and church pastor has been sentenced to 105 years in prison on child molesting charges.
The prison term, ordered by a Delaware County judge, was ordered on Wednesday for Brian Couch. The 57-year-old pleaded guilty back in July to three felony counts of child molestation.
Muncie’s Star Press reported that when Couch was arrested in 2019, he was a school nurse at Yorktown elementary and middle schools, a town adjacent to Muncie.
He had also been a pastor for multiple years at Yorktown Church of the Nazarene.
In the charges, Couch was accused of sexually abusing a girl “almost daily” over the course of several years, beginning when she was only 6-years-old.
