GOSHEN — An Elkhart man who admitted to charges related to a home invasion and sexual battery will spend 30 years in prison after a judge corrected his sentence to reflect his plea agreement.

Michael Middaugh Sr., 52, was sentenced in September 2020 after pleading guilty to burglary and criminal confinement while armed with a deadly weapon, Level 2 and Level 3 felonies, as well as sexual battery under threat of deadly force, a Level 4 felony. He also admitted to a habitual offender enhancement, which was based on past convictions for rape and child molesting.
