Ex-banker gets deal in child molestation case

An ex-Michigan bank president accused of molesting a 6-year-old girl has pleaded guilty in a deal that could eventually clear him of felony charges and keep him off Indiana’s sex offender registry. St. Joseph (Ind.) County prosecutors charged William C. Peterson, 43, with felony child molesting. The South Bend Tribune reported authorities accuse the Granger resident of fondling a sleeping girl in May 2008. St. Joseph, Mich.-based Edgewater Bank fired Peterson soon after he was charged.

His trial was to start Friday. Under Tuesday’s deal, he’ll be sentenced in 2014 on misdemeanor battery charges and will be cleared of felony penalties if he sticks to court-ordered terms. They include staying away from the victim, continuing psychiatric counseling, attending Alcoholics Anonymous meetings, and abstaining from drugs and alcohol.

    • SOUTH BEND – A former bank president accused of molesting a 6-year-old girl in May 2008 has been sentenced to two years in prison for violating the terms of a plea agreement.

45-year-old William Peterson of Granger pleaded guilty to sexual battery and battery and is now required to register as a sex offender.

On April 12, Peterson reportedly tested positive for alcohol, violating his plea agreement, refused urine drug screenings, failed to report to probation and did not attend alcohol and mental health counseling, according to deputy prosecutor Cara Brook at an April 20 hearing.

By not following the court deal, St, Joseph Superior Court Judge Jane Woodward Miller called Peterson to court to convict him of child molesting and sexual battery, and on Friday, it was Woodward Miller who handed down the 2-year prison sentence.

According to court documents, Peterson, former president of St. Joseph, Mich.-based Edgewater Bank, fondled a sleeping 6-year-old girl at a home in Granger in May 2008.
