Elkhart man faces 200 years for child molestation

ELKHART COUNTY, Ind. — An Elkhart man is facing 200 years in prison for molesting his own stepdaughter.

Investigators say Jose Rodriguez, 50, showed his then nine-year-old daughter a porn video.  

Officers say he then promised her he would show her how to do what was being depicted.

Police accuse the girl's mother of not reporting him to the police after walking in on the two having oral sex at one point.

A jury found Rodriguez guilty of multiple counts of child molestation.

He is set to be sentenced in two weeks.
