Jeffries Guilty

A man found guilty Wednesday of sexually assaulting a young girl is awaiting his sentencing in April.

Danny Lee Jeffries was charged with 20 counts of sodomy and two counts of sexual abuse after someone came forward and said he was sexually abusing a ten year old girl.

After deliberating, jurors found Jeffries guilty on five of the sodomy charges and the two sexual abuse charges.

Jeffries' attorney plans to appeal the ruling.

Investigators say because Jeffries has previous felony charges, he could get life without parole.
