TERRE HAUTE, Ind. (WTHI) - We have new details in a high profile child neglect case as the last man accused of abuse was sentenced on Friday afternoon.

Eight of those years are to be served with the Indiana Department of Corrections.

Four years must be served on formal probation.

Kraemer entered a guilty plea to five counts of neglect of a dependent.
