Cornelio Salinas, 40, was sentenced to 12 years in prison and 18 years of probation in Dearborn County Circuit Court on Friday, Feb. 14. According to sentencing information, he will also have to register as a lifetime sexual offender.
He could be out much earlier due to the time he has already served in jail. He was credited with 1,026 days good time served.
He was arrested in September 2012 after an investigation that he allegedly molested a young girl between 2000 and 2002.
