Child Molester Sentenced

A convicted child molester has been ordered to spend the rest of his natural life in prison.

Danny Lee Jeffries was convicted last month on five counts of first degree sodomy and three counts of sexual abuse.

The victim was a 6-and-a-half year old girl.

Jeffries received five life sentences Tuesday on the sodomy charges.

Judge Ed Jackson ordered those sentences to run consecutively.

Jefferies was sentenced to additional 45-years behind bars on the sex abuse charges.

Jeffries plans to appeal his case.

Two other men convicted of sexually assaulting the same child have each been sentenced to more than a century in prison.
