Man, 63, draws 15 years for molesting 4-year-old

A 63-year-old Michigan man was sentenced this week in Allen Superior Court to 15 years in prison and five years’ probation for molesting a 4-year-old girl last fall.

In January, Ronnie Raty Crissey of Wyoming, Mich., pleaded guilty to Class B felony child molesting.

Additional charges of Class A felony child molesting and Class C felony child molesting were dismissed.

The girl told police Crissy fondled her and had her touch him sexually. The same day, he left a phone message for the girl’s mother, apologizing for his actions, according to court documents.
