At his trial last month, Georgia native Nicholas Deon Thrash, 34, was found guilty of repeatedly molesting the girl beginning when she was 8 when he lived with the child and her mother in Georgia, according to the Marion, Indiana-based Chronicle-Tribune.

Thrash and the girl’s mother fled Georgia for Indiana with the child after the girl reported the abuse when she was 9.

He was eventually arrested and prosecuted for the crime in Indiana.

At his sentencing Thursday, he repeatedly blamed the girl, calling the victim a liar.

The girl, now 12, was forced to give birth at 11 and forced to give the baby up for adoption, Deputy Grant County prosecutor Lisa Glancy told the Chronicle-Tribune.

"He showed no remorse," Glancy said. "Absolutely none."

The girl gave an impact statement during Thrash's sentencing, saying that the crimes forced upon her caused her pain and have impacted her life in many ways, the newspaper reported.
