Man gets 160-year prison sentence for impregnating 10-year-old girl who took stand against him




A 34-year-old Indiana man was sentenced to 160 years in prison on Thursday for impregnating a 10-year-old girl, who courageously testified against him.
The 10-year-old girl took the stand in Grant County earlier this year, telling the jury that Nicholas Thrash molested her at least 15 times. She was 11 when she gave birth to her baby boy last year.
Investigators reported that the mother discovered the pregnancy as her daughter was trying on dresses for a school dance she was attending. When the girl told her mother who was responsible, her mother told the 10-year-old girl to say a classmate is responsible for the pregnancy if anyone at school asked.
According to CBS 4, Thrash is looking to serve a minimum of 132 of the 160 years in prison.
The conviction is "something little compared to what (the victim) has gone through and what she will go through,” deputy prosecutor Lisa Glancy told the Chronicle-Tribune.
The girl’s mother and family faced neglect and other charges earlier this year.

Meet Alice Sumo, the midwife who has 1,000 babies named after her in Liberia

Alice Sumo is a respected nurse in Liberia where she has been a midwife for nearly three decades.  She was so loved and respected in Montserrado County that 1,000 babies have been named after her.
Alice, whose name means 'peace', has worked through the civil war and Ebola to do her job. She delivered her first baby at gun point at the side of the road.  In her three-decade career, she did not stop working even during the epidemic which claimed nearly 5,000 lives in Liberia in 2014 and 2015.  New mothers who Alice has cared for and supported through their pregnancy have called their daughters after her or if it's a boy, named him Alex. 
Alice now runs a maternal health center opened by Save the Children in her rural community. The children are a living testament to the impact Alice has had in Liberia.
