A Kosciusko County man has been sentenced to eight years in prison for child molesting. The  Steuben Superior Court judge handling the case suspended two years of the term. In a plea deal last month, 26-year-old David Ellenberger of Mentone pleaded guilty to the crime in exchange for dropping another molesting charge. According to court documents, Ellenberger molested a four-year-old boy at Pokagon State Park in February of 2013.
