Ex-Yorktown school nurse, pastor gets 105 years for molesting

A former central Indiana school nurse and church pastor has been sentenced to 105 years in prison on child molesting charges.

A Delaware County judge ordered the prison term on Wednesday for 57-year-old Brian Couch of Yorktown, who pleaded guilty in July to three felony counts of child molesting.

When Couch was arrested in August 2019, he was a nurse assigned to Yorktown elementary and middle schools. He had also been a pastor for several years at Yorktown Church of the Nazarene, The (Muncie) Star Press reported.

Crouch was charged with sexually abused a girl “almost daily” over a period of several years beginning when she was 6 years old. Other charges against him included allegations that he fondled three girls when they visited his home between 2012 and 2016.

Prosecutors sought a maximum 150-year sentence for Couch. The judge ordered 35-year prison terms for each of his three convictions, with the sentences to be served one after another.
