21-year-old Christopher Michael Upchurch pleaded guilty but mentally ill. He must register as a sex offender for life.
He was arrested in February 2022 after the victim was interviewed at Holly’s House.
“This is certainly a disturbing case,” said Posey County Prosecutor Thomas Clowers. “I am amazed at the courage and strength of this young survivor for speaking up and standing up against her abuser. I’m grateful for the folks at Holly’s House and the thorough investigation conducted by (Posey County Sheriff’s Office) Detective Kyle Reidford.”
