INDIANAPOLIS — A man in Indianapolis will not serve time in prison for molesting his young daughter.
Jeremy Schwer pled guilty earlier this week to child molestation charges, the Indianapolis Star reports.
Court records say the crimes occurred after the 6-year-old girl was diagnosed with cancer and her parents started alternating taking care of her at night.
Prosecutors say they wanted him to serve nine years in prison, but the girl’s mother, who filed for divorce, asked the court not to send him to prison because she needs him to financially support the children.
Schwer was sentenced to 12 years probation.
