Ex-banker from Granger headed to prison for child molesting
- 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.
