10 a.m. 35A02-1206-CR-530. Indiana University - South Bend. The State charged Overton with Class A felony child molesting, but after a bench trial, the trial court found Overton guilty of Class C felony child molesting.  Overton filed a motion to correct error, arguing that the statute of limitations for a Class C felony charge had run by the time the State filed the charge here, but the trial court denied the motion to correct error.  On appeal, Overton argues that the Class C felony conviction was improper because the statute of limitations had run.  The State argues that the statute of limitations was tolled by Overton’s concealment of his crime through threats to the victim.
