Obomsawin Sentenced to Six Years in DOC

 A South Bend man was sentenced Tuesday morning in Starke Circuit Court after pleading guilty to an amended count of child molesting as a Class C felony.

A plea recommendation was offered in the case of Adam Obomsawin which Judge Kim Hall accepted. Judge Hall sentenced Obomsawin, 36, to six years in the Indiana Department of Corrections with two years suspended to be served on probation. In addition, Obomsawin was ordered to undergo sex offender treatment. Upon the successful completion of that course, he may petition the court for a modification of the sentence. He is to have no contact with the victim during the execution of his sentence.

Obomsawin admitted in open court in a hearing in August that he did touch a female juvenile less than 14 years of age in a sexual manner while in a camper at the EZ Camp Campground in the Grovertown area in the time frame of August to November 2012.

He was ordered to pay a child abuse prevention fee of $100 and a sexual assault victim’s assistant fee of $250.

While he is on probation, he will need to participate in phase two of the sex offender program for further treatment.

He was given credit for serving 263 days in jail.
