VANDERBURGH CO., IN (WFIE) -

A man who police say molested a 4-year-old girl was sentenced this week to 79 years in prison.
      
25-year-old Ryan Remling was convicted by the jury after a two-day trial. Police arrested him in December after getting a tip he had a video of the child on his phone.

After Remling's sentencing, Vanderburgh County Deputy Prosecutor, Kelly Corne said he, "stole choices from that little girl, choices she should have had the chance to make on her own."

Helping innocent victims who don't deserve what happened to them--and encouraging them to become survivors. That is the goal for officials at Holly's House.

And that's what authorities like Detective Brian Turpin, whose worked in this position for more than a decade are dedicated to doing. But it's not just the victims who they try to help.

Turpin says he's worked thousands of cases tells us it can be hard when interviewing the victim, but that they need to keep one goal in mind, finding the perpetrator.

Right now, Holly's House is working with thousands of Tri-State students in an effort to teach them about what it means to be a victim.

We will keep you updated on their plans.
