Probation not prison ordered in teen sex case

A Fort Wayne man who previously admitted to having sex with a 14-year-old girl avoided a sentence Monday that included any time in prison.

According to the terms of a plea agreement with Allen County prosecutors, 20-year-old Michael Doucet received a three-year suspended prison sentence in Allen Superior Court. He was also ordered to serve four years on probation.

Doucet, of the 9200 block of Blazing Woods Trail, was accused of having sex with the girl last November at age 19.

Charged with two felony counts of sexual misconduct with a minor, Doucet pleaded guilty to one of those charges as part of the agreement with prosecutors. Prosecutors then recommended that Doucet not serve prison time.
