A jury found a 39-year-old man from Indiana guilty on nine felony counts of child molestation.
Prosecutors say Christopher W. Truman of Porter County started molesting a boy who looked up to him as a father figure and moved on to the sons and stepsons of school friends after that first victim turned 18 and moved away.
They say Truman would take the boys to a nearby hotel to go swimming and watch wrestling.
The parents of the children were reportedly friends with Truman until the accusations came out on Aug. 4, 2012.
Truman faces up to 50 years in prison on each of the three counts of Class A felony child molesting alone.
He’s scheduled to be back in court for sentencing on February 25.
